Yes, study of life is the study of everything around. No religion can match this idea. Is so-called religion of any caste and creed really needed for us? Does its practices make any sense at all. I am irreligious all the way and it does not cost me anything, and I practice life religiously through ample living with honesty and integrity. I only feel depressed when I look around the sinister world. Life is not to consume but to enjoy as per one's aesthetical and ethical tastes, isn't it? What the heck ritual and practicing religion is? It just dehumanizes, it just plays a havoc into one's self-confidence and convictions - my lived experiences say so. And last but not the least, religion puts paid to one's universal self.
