You seem to forget that "sin" is a part of christian Dogma. In the real world there's no sin. I know very well what the founding fathers meant; they were also politicians through and through, and in their private lives weren't christian in the least. They were either atheist or members of such secret societies as the Freemasons. It's funny that you should use cars and car manuals as a metaphor here, because by that view, you're forgetting that different makes and models from different countries around the world have different manuals. A manual for a 1986 Chevy Cavalier isn't going to tell you how to take care of a 2008 Nissan Skyline. Likewise, different regions of the world have different religions.
By the way, society runs better without a religious majority/influence. Norway is a prime example. With a 70% Atheist population, they're by far the most Atheist society in the world. They have the lowest crime rate, one of the strongest economies in the world, and one of the highest national education scores in the entire world.
Science adapts with the evidence that does or doesn't appear. Religion doesn't. Hence why it's useless. It's not an absolute truth by far, and the bible is most certainly nowhere near true, being a plagiarized work and propaganda piece.
To be quite honest, I could care less about the older generation of believers; I know that you're too indoctrinated to be fixed. No, I'd much rather see the indoctrination of future generations stop. There is no religion that is truly peaceful aside from Bhuddism. You want a peaceful religion that allows you to live a good life as a good person? Become a Bhuddist Monk.
My point of view doesn't even come CLOSE to what you describe as "the lonely knowledge that no matter what you do, you will have no significance in this world or the next," but rather the knowledge that it is important to be a good person not for fear of damnation, or the promise of the reward of eternal life but because we have one very short existence, and instead of perpetuating a set of lies, we should be ridding society of anything that brutalizes it, has no solid evidence to back it up, and makes people believe in fairy tales. We have one shot to try and improve conditions for the next generations, and wasting time perpetuating ancient myths as some sort of absolute truth isn't going to get us anywhere.

Lastly, to anyone that says we'll see who's right when we die, remember, there are over 10,000 possibilities of where you go when you die. Well, fairy tale possibilities anyways. In the real world, death is final.
