Throughout my life I have been in and out of various religions and philosophies so I can safely claim I've stood on "each side of the fence". Taoism, Zen, Bhuddism, Atheism up to born-again Christian ("hah", I can hear you say, "you weren't truely born again if you went back from that!" ;-), I've had it all.
The notion conveyed in Quinn's books is closest to a very early Taoism in my opinion which might be due to the fact that Taoism itself is very very old, just like man, so is probably not as "tainted" in its concepts as most other taker religions like Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and what not.
This does not imply that Dan's books are about religion; only marginally in fact. If you're interested of a first glimpse into his ideas I'd recommend you check the website at Ishmael.org or this document.
