<Whether or not one is religious, I think we all can agree that human beings are much more complicated and integrated beings than we may even admit to ourselves.>
1.Being religious, in my definition, is being aware of and awed by the Grand Mystery of Existence, finding a little peace in the contemplation of that Mystery,acknowledging our our finiteness in the face of the unfathomable Infinity, being grateful for the human experience, and being sensitive to the feelings and needs of fellow humans. In this sense, most people are religious whether they describe themselves so or not.
2. Yes none but the most shallow and the most ignorant will fail to see that human beings are enormously complex and mysteriously integrated as apparently independent entities.
