In the past, people knew we could say nothing about God.

For people who can't say anything they sure talk a lot.

Religious experience is not undefinable. It is wilfully unexamined by the experiencer. Bonds built by common experience remain common experience with or without the self-proclaimed authority of religion. Those reluctant to let go of religious story as hard truth may find that they actually fear lack of permanency and the presumed stability religion is supposed to bring.
