I wish it were. But at the moment, competing philosophies of politics or subculture have utterly failed to match in inspiration the push by religion to community involvement and charity, even if the context of some of those actions become muddied by that purpose. Such as with some charity groups in Africa which withhold food from the non-believers and give only to the believers. If we want religion to be redundant, those who are non-religious should find something to rally around in order to find community, and something more important than the fact of non-religion, a philosophy of human freedom and prosperity which isn't just objectivism.
