I think we have similiar philosophies but I disagree on the insect comparison. Do insects have any sense of death? Probably not, as a matter of fact they probably don't have a conscience anywhere near our level of mind.

So the need for a god, aka explanation of life, death, and an afterlife would not be needed for the insect at all. I think there are good arguments that religions have thrived because of this human need, not in spite of a lack of a need.
