In the west, atheism and agnosticism are on the rise. While this secularisation arguably brought about progress in many areas, it also has some downsides. In the past, most people saw their family and friends every week at church, thanked for their food before every meal and were comforted by the hope their religion gave them.
In what way could atheism learn from religions? Should we build non-religious rituals to replace religious ones? Should we create new spaces in which to reflect on philosophical questions? Or have we already replaced our religions by ideologies such as liberalism or Communism?
