Organized Religion status

Organized religion are the established religions that everybody knows about.  Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam.  They are some of the oldest historical belief systems. These are the organized ones; those that have creeds and dogmas and operate according to their hierarchy. The hierarchy of each religion is what gives it the structure that outsiders can recognize.
There exist also religions which are ancient, yet they are not particularly organized; they do not have a recognizable hierarchy.  Paganism, Wicca, and animism for example.
What is the status of these religions in the current era? There seems to be a trend that the people of the global world are turning away from these established religions. Why is this occurring? Did they find something better? Do they even know what they’ve found which replaces their traditional dependence upon religion? Let’s explore this phenomenon.
