The evolution of Religion

I have another question, this one pertaining to the theory that religion like everything thing else has evolved from a simpler form. For example, polytheism evolved into monotheism, and it did so just to help us survive and feel happy. I guess I can see our sense of spirituality evolving so we can have a relationship with God, but it doesn't seem like Darwinian evolution isn't sufficient enough to explain away religion. I would very much like to hear what your views are on this theory.

Response: The fact that our understanding of God has "evolved" doesn't make it false. Our vision has evolved, our ability to think has evolved, science and mathematics have evolved.
