Irrelevant Religious Beliefs?

To those of you with religious beliefs, is there anything that often falls into the realm of "religion" that you find *irrelevant* to your path? What, and why? And is this something considered irrelevant by your path as a whole, or by you personally?

For example, my religious beliefs have a big, resounding "no comment" on the questions, "where does the world come from?" "Where do humans come from?" and "What happens to us after we die?" Those issues have not the slightest bearing on my beliefs and practices. This is likely more to do with me, personally; I follow a Greek path, and how relevant those isues are/were to practitioners seems to vary a lot -- mystery cults obviously cared a lot about the afterlife in a way that average practitioners may not have, for example.
