Irreligion (adjective form: non-religious or irreligious) is the absence, indifference to, or rejection of religion. According to the Pew Research Center's global study of countries and territories, 16% of the world's population is not affiliated with a religion, while 84% are affiliated.

Irreligion may include some forms of theism, depending on the religious context it is defined. In Irreligion he presents the case for his own worldview, organizing his book into twelve chapters that refute the twelve arguments most often put forward for believing in God's existence.

In Irreligion John Allen Paulos basically goes through what are apparently the main arguments for the existence of 'god' and skewers them.

Religious texts are texts related to a religious tradition. They differ from literary texts by being a compilation or discussion of beliefs, mythologies, ritual practices, commandments or laws, ethical conduct, spiritual aspirations, and for creating or fostering a religious community.

Judaism, Islam, and irreligion.
