Askmen.com claims Napoleon was an atheist

You would be hard-pressed to meet many people who have never heard of Napoleon Bonaparte. One of the greatest military leaders the world has ever seen, and responsible in large part for some of the most dramatic political upheavals in European history, his religious views are far less well known. Perhaps it won’t come as a surprise that as a son of the French Revolution, which placed significant emphasis on separating religion from the state, Napoleon was not a man who was enamored by the idea of God. He is credited as having said, “All religions have been made by men,” suggesting that he was pragmatic, and an atheist.
