Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I believe that man is religious by nature and that religion is so pervasive that the very act of refusing to believe in a superior or supreme being may be considered a religion itself; i.e., the religion of "no god(s).

That's a rather unlikely point of view, given that secular Western cultures get by just fine without assuming that historical narratives about supreme beings are in any way associated with reality.

"What does this have to do with anything?" is a reasonable question to ask people who try to persuade you that their own personal mythopoetic religious personification is the only one that matters.
