Of course you can be moral without a belief in God -- hell, you can be moral without a belief in morals. What I like best about religion is the ritual -- we have gotten away from understanding the importance of ritual on connecting us with the great mysteries. I spent my 60th birthday sitting in a graveyard in an Indian village in Mexico, for midnight to dawn, watching the Day of the Dead rituals. It was extremely moving, partly because no one was telling me how to feel or what to think. This Christmas, for the first time ever, we hung lights on our house -- not because we believe in Christmas, but because we believe in lights.
