In the post-apocalypse, only sentient machines are left. I lead a cult based on an old cosmo magazine.

"NEGATIVE. I WAS NOT PROGRAMMED TO FEEL LOVE."

Probably some of the Post-Apocalyptic Philip K Dick books.

He's considered a prophet who saw and tried to warn us. Group takes a lot of drugs they can in the hopes of finding the "Ubik" that can free them from the Black Iron Prison. Most of the time a rag-tag group of bearded theosophists will show up and sell you drugs. Well unless they identify you as a Roman, or a Palmer, or a Woman (I'm exaggerating slightly, PKD's female characters weren't all deceptive agents of chaos, destruction, and evil. Some of them were manipulative liars he was quite sympathetic towards.) then it's probably going to be a bad day.

Stories of old tell of 2 factions and their eternal struggle.
One red as Blood, Coka-Coala, a veritable titan! Firmly established amongst its kind as strongest and greatest, none could touch its glory without burning to ash. Coka-Coala single handed paved the way for all lesser warriors into Grand Society with itself firmly and rightly at its helm.
One blue as the ice in its veins, PeepSee, a would be usurper. A child to the world of Coka-Coala it wanted the glory and status of Coka-Coala and like a child it wanted this without having to put in the same amount of work. Its very name speaks to the betrayal it perpetrated, attempted stealing of the holy secrets.
This my fellow tribesmen is why we must raid the western camps and take back by force what was stolen from us like our Patriarch.
Coca-Coala revives and sustains us!

The Goyim cult. Worshippers of an ancient trickster god, who has beset civilization since before time began. The entire purpose of the cult is to gather enough shiny coins to appease the eternal spirit, so that he may never again awaken from his slumber.

For added flavor, the cult headquarters is a holocaust memorial, the ancient site marking a failed attempt to exorcize the spirit from this plane of existence.

Both actually. both the atmosphere and ionosphere provide protection.

You guys should see the reports from the voyager probes. Outside of the suns protection, the universe is a fucking hotpot of radiation and energy. Galactic background radiation jumped to about double of what it was experiencing within the heliosphere, which is how they knew that it had left the solar system.

They worship an ancient printer, which is stuck in an error mode and keeps printing out pages filled with error codes. Despite not being able to understand it, the cult interprets this as being a holy gospel, and makes up meanings for the codes as tenets for their people to live by.
