Religion is not lost when the traditional non-material and spiritual are lost
Sex and the genitals are not the deepest focus of the "instincts," which Freud more or less believed. The activation of material life by the material Spirit-Will within life, within every cell of the body, is the focus of the instincts. The instincts have a purpose beyond human abstract definitions of ends and purposes and that purpose is to evolve materially to supermaterial (not supernatural) Godhood. This is what grounds real religion, long-term religion, deeper than anything else. "Action follows motivation" but things are not working on their own with only short term ends. The Spirit-Will is the dominate activation, the intellect is secondary...And it is all empirical, if we can find it.
