Religion or no Relgion?

After Oprah's Interview with Bill O'Rially, being the curious me I started searching him on You Tube. I then came across another interesting Tv presenter called Bill Maher. As much as I differ 180 degrees in Bill Maher opinions but its really interesting to hear the other side.

Maher is against any kind of organized religions. He believes in a God but not a god that is represented in the Bible, the Old Testament or The Quran. To him, people who believe in religions have neurological disorder because we are brainwashed to believe this way since young.

Anyway, what I am trying to discuss here is if we did not have religions do you think our set of morals would be the same? Do you think we wouldn't "create" our religions?
I think Humans need religions to act morally. They need a book of rules to tell them what we are allowed to do and what we aren't.. even when we have them, we still have people who don't follow them so imagine not having them!!

Hell and Heaven are another "motivation" to act well. Believing that in the long run we will get what we want, and we will be treated according to what we did helps us to live a happier life. Of course its not an easy path since its not a tangible one, but I guess it does play a role.

I don't know, but I feel the world is safer with people believing in religion rather than having people who don't believe in anything at all!
