The opposite of religion is atheism, but the opposite of religious arrogance, is agnosticism. Agnosticism is coming to terms with the imminent fact, that one still doesn't actually know the true origins of the universe and life. It does not concern itself with the perpetual rantings of monotheism, led on by the figureheads who will blindly claim they know not only that god created the universe, but also that they know the mind of this god, his desires. It instead rests on the proposition, that we still don't know everything yet, let alone who or what catalyzed the beginning of our existence. Anyone who would reside with this idea, religious, or atheist, is agnostic.
