I hardly think the actual topic at hand is "religion" in any
meaningful sense, as there's very little if any argument-from-
authority or arguments that require faith. Rather, it's all "if A,
then B." That's not religion, that's reason.
...though I don't deny that there's a rather unsettling aspect to
some of the cosmological escatology discussed, as well as the
discussions of e.g. the necessity (given certain assumptions) of non-
terminating subjective experience.
