...religion is/was humanity's first attempt to make sense of the universe...
That is like saying vicodine, oxycontin was an attempt to make a better painkiller. It is true, but look how it was used, and promoted by big pharma, and took lives, and finally got banned.
That should be the fate of religion. The first three stages match, and if not in name but in effect the last stage, banning religion, is happening right now. Today, big companies, the real powers, care not for religious dissent in their offices. And the idea is spreading everywhere. Today, the only group that cares about religious purity are the politicians.
This is the age of practice, not prayer.
