If that purpose turns out to be highly invalid and immoral, like Jihad or whatever, then.....its time to wrap this one up and start probing a different religion to find the true one.
So christianity is a false religion? Lets think about things like the crusades, the reformation, inquisition, manifest destiny in the USA, to name just a couple things.
If you want to give me your exact mini-sect(because all christian "religions" are just off-shoots of others), I am sure I can find instances of immorality and violence in its history.

different atheists have different purposes in reality. What religion does is it streamlines that higher purpose.
First of all, you can easily substitute religions for atheist above, or actually any other word that is a subset of humanity.
The second statement is just a bland assertion. Or at least an equivocation of how you used the word for describing an atheistic higher purpose.

There's plenty of unanswered paranormal mysteries out there.
Examples please. I would venture to guess most of your examples are unanswered because they either have not been investigated or the "phenomena" could not be repeated or independently verified. People can claim anything, verifying things as truthful or real is a big issue.
