Can we live without a religion?

Many people associate the word religion to Islam , Christianity or Judaism
but religion word is much more than that
religion in short form is a "life style " believe or not
your life style is your religion
religion is a template with Basic fields
Who Made life ?
Why he made ?
What he want from you? in other word how should we spend our time in this word ?
any answers to the above question will form a religion regardless of the answers
Who Made life ? no one
Why he made ? I don't know
What he want from you? No thing
how should we spend our time in this word ? as I wish
this a complete religion
but the question will be is it True or false answers
What I want to say

"No one can live a single moment without a religion "

but he can live with true or false religion deepening on his answers

    Jul 22 2011: This discussion as by the proposition of the question, turned to which religion is better too fast. I think the question in itself is wrong because it proposes that by living you're religious. Therefore, if the question in itself is accepted, the only logical answer is: no, can't live without a religion.
    But if we understand religion as the own consensus approves (a set of practices enticing spirituality), we can then work on true possibilities.
    Personally, i think we can live without spiritual practices. But I direct my answer to the risk of defining such thing. Religion is the most personal thing a person may have. Even if the religion is practiced in group, faith comes from within. So I always fear statistics of democratic (majority) understandings about faith.
