lol the imperium of man isn't even religious. the emperor of mankind literally abolished all known religions and superstitions around the year 8000 in the universe.

The Imperium of Man couldn't be more religious, the Emperor is venerated as a god. That's the tragic irony of his plight; he strived so hard for humanity to be secular, despite the fact he knew there were real gods who actually answered prayers, and in the end, he is the one who ends up as the object of worship.

Bear in mind as well that while he abolished religions, he did it MILLENNIA ago. Since then, a religious cult has sprung up around the sacrifice he made to defeat Horus. His life is basically mythology at this point.

@ Gornak

Kind of makes you wonder if he'll come back as a Chaos god to seek vengeance on the imperium. Some real wrath of god type stuff.

space marines equate to warrior monks people trained all there lives and devoted to one purpose the defense of the imperium of man... they are religious zelots they have no mercy nor compassion for heritics

ultra marines in preicular spend a good part of there day i nmeditation and prayer (space wolves spend it drinking)

the imperium worships the god emperor so yea lots of religion in 40k world

Your irony meter is broken.
