A religion old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths.
Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge.
Daoism The concept of the Dao is one of the best examples of a truly pantheistic belief. The Dao is the ultimate, ineffable principle, containing the entirety of the universe, yet also embodying nothingness as its nature. Further, it is a natural law and a system of self-regulating principles. Thus, the Dao, in its totality, represents the central unifying metaphysical and naturalistic principle pervading the entire universe. This allows belief in it to be classified as a form of naturalistic pantheism.
Do you find it impossible to believe in supernatural beings, and difficult to conceive of anything more worthy of reverence than the beauty of Nature or the power of the Universe?

I don't know if everyone believing the same thing is the best route, though.. humans need to be challenged or they grow lazy and stagnant.

I think maybe you are a little fuzzy as to what you are against. The definition of religion is simply (b (1) : the service and worship of God or the supernatural). why would you be against that? Perhaps maybe what you meant is organized religion. However, this to would seem to go against what you preach. Jesus himself was for the organization of his own ministry, was he not?
