...and it would also make you naive about the universe in my honest opinion - using mythological personifications to explain scientific questions/phenomena was/is the kind of reasoning that either pre-scientific cultures, or children, use.

I think you're missing the point.

I'm looking for a discussion on whether believing in god makes you religious

I'm not Religious but am certainly open to the ideas of the various religions, so if I may I'd like to add a question to the conversation. If you believe in god(s), what is it about that religion that inclines you to put your faith in them and why not others?

well, religion isn't based on philosophy or science, but rather unfounded beliefs based on a blind acceptance of magical claims without evidence, but it is possible to be non-religious yet have a belief in a deity that isn't mythologised I suppose if you can manage to justify its existence through logic, and the deity isn't defined as having personified features (although maybe that's essentially the difference between scientific events/explanations and deities), but nobody's ever managed to do it successfully so far and probably never will

Believing in god doesn't necessarily mean that you believe in any of the religions we have today

You don't have to be religious to believe in God. It is perfectly possible to believe in a higher power without actually worshiping this power, or adhering to specific rules, participating in rituals or attaching meaning to related symbolism. I wouldn't call personal faith/belief religious anyway...
