All you need to do is glace at this color coded map of the world's religions:

If this source had mapped post-religion as grey, good chance most of it would be a uniform grey.  Post-religion isn’t exactly atheism and isn’t exactly agnosticism, but rather a kind of grey that means more like knowing that religion exists and knowing it is vaguely culture-linked, but doesn’t insist on any particular dogma and doesn’t claim any particular relevance.
