Also - generally speaking, a cult is something associated with religon.

Sure. But there are other definitions.

And I think many of the ideas expressed on this site are very cult like.

"great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work (as a film or book); especially : such devotion regarded as a literary or intellectual fad b : the object of such devotion c : a usually small group of people characterized by such devotion"

"3. idolization of somebody or something: an extreme or excessive admiration for a person, philosophy of life, or activity ( often used before a noun )
the cult of youth
a cult hero


4. object of idolization: a person, philosophy, or activity regarded with extreme or excessive admiration


5. fad: something popular or fashionable among a devoted group of enthusiasts ( often used before a noun )
has taken on cult status"

6) An exclusive group of persons sharing an esoteric, usually artistic or intellectual interest. "
