(Prove) Alternative definition:
Religion is the coming together of two or more persons with similar
beliefs and desires in an endeavor to further their moral and intellectual
beings as prescribed by their beliefs which are set forth by a god or set
(E1) A god, being the creation of uncontrollable fears, is not real
except in the minds of a group expressing said fears and thus groups having
different fears have different gods.
(E2) Each group can be said to have an individual religion if it shares
the same beliefs about its uncontrollable fears, and thus its god(s), and
the group endeavors to further its moral and intellectual being.
(E3) If a group believes there is no fear that cannot be controlled,
regardless of the fear's current state, then the group would have a Null
god. [From (E1)] Furthermore, suppose this group works to develop its moral
and intellectual being.
(Contradiction) By definition the group in E3 is a religion; however,
a religion with a Null god is one without any god.
(Conclusion) A religion need not have a god; therefore, the alternative
definition is false.
