Their "mass" consists essentially of sitting quietly with other Quakers and waiting for God to speak to them

I interpret that as crazy.

I think that there are important questions that religion answers for most people, things such as the standards for ethical behavior and the meaning of life,

There may be some ethical inspiration in religion if they cherry pick it , but there's diffidently lots of inspiration to be unethical.

Religion doesn't answer a single question about the meaning of life that I know of.. At least none that match up with reality.

But i also think that something will take their place. Whether that something is philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, poetry, literature, something else, or some combination of all of them I don't know.

How about reality.
