"deeper spiritual levels "
I think you need to explain exactly what you mean by spiritual, and how any definition differs from a materialistic explanation, before any further conversation can have any useful meaning.

Never stop with the Father Ted. It's about the only good thing that ever came out of religion. Well, that and the Life of Brian.

I'm not sure he'd agree with you, he had a dislike of hierarchy and famously said "I'm an Atheist, thank God!" - no doubt a product of shifting through 3 different private religious schools by the age of 16!

His attitude and beliefs towards religion made him one of the funniest comedians out there. Without religion he wouldn't have had 90% of his material.
