"The Myth of Religious Neutrality" So, I've come across a person who's made this statement: "Every single human is religious. I reject the myth of religious neutrality. The shared commonality of all belief systems are that they all rely on axiomatic assumptions that can't be proven." I'm having trouble with the "axiomatic assumptions" part. Isn't an axiom something that is self-evident, therefore, an axiom doesn't need to be proven? So, in general, doesn't the fact that most, if not all, religions have a holy book, show that this belief is non-axiomatic? Because one has been given "proof" for the validity of whatever religion?
