"Who will tell us the truth?"

Most of the art I have encountered from pre-history to the 19th Century has been religiously inspired. If there was no religion, such art would not exist. You claim there would still be plenty of great architecture and art without religion, but that is conjecture and thus not provable fact. There are other sources of inspiration, yes, but an awful lot of traditional art and culture has been shaped, flavoured and inspired by religion as my list in an earlier post describes. The rest of your post is conjecture and thus cannot be argued with fact-based debate.
Cheers and be well.
Even science is beholden to "religion." Alfred North Whitehead said: "“Men became scientific because they expected law in nature, and they expected law in nature because they believed in a Lawgiver.”
