On another philosophical note. Aikido can be defined as a religion. It meets the basic criteria for many people. and for many (as I believe in O'Sensei's case and many, many of his direct students, it is a religion.

But it can also be looked at as a religion of non-religion since it is for most part non-dogmatic.
