I think you're assuming quite a lot here. Many, many Christians, for example, do not remotely believe in Bible literalism. I realise there are a fair few sects, mostly in the USA, who subscribe to seven-day young-Earth Creationism, but in my country many Christians either laugh at those people or find them deeply embarrassing. And that's just within Christianity - I certainly know Pagans who don't take every story within their faith literally, and I'm sure the same applies in various other religions.

Religion is if you'll forgive me, a broad church. I think your decision to define it this narrowly is a misguided one.
