Doesn't follow any one faith necessarily to the letter, but still believes in a concept of some higher essence (God). "Spiritual but not religious" as it might be called. That's what I was thinking of, anyways. Not sure if it came across that way. These are people who believe in a concept of a higher being (God) without necessarily going with everybody else of that faith (assembly and interpretation).

And this?
Perhaps it would be helpful if you could tell us what you think "religious" means.
"Religious": of, relating to, or devoted to religious beliefs or observances <joined a religious order>
These ones attending service/assembly and taking it literally.

Both groups believe in God, one religious, the other not. Both of which would still fall under, say, a scientist's view as of superstition either way--Unless I'm mistaken?

I guess so far as you'd be concerned I merely pointed out a difference in people and their perceptions (those believing in God).
