Through the ages, concept of morality or what is right/wrong has been dictated by religions. Fear of God or Heavenly rewards have been used sticks to herd us. Nowadays, more n more people are getting enlightened and moving away from organized religions altogether.
What do we see as a future of Morality in the world increasingly getting devoid of God/Religion?
I heard people argue that Human beings are capable of empathy, compassion, caring, and moral and ethical judgment regardless of their religious affiliation or religiosity. But, we also have seen human monstrosity beyond words where fear of heavenly retribution loomed large.
All religions point to the same motive, which is love and peacefulness. Now, the idea of religion is basically to form a uniform set of rules that its followers should follow in order to live what they feel like a meaningful life. If you take a closer look at the Atheists or the aborigines of a country, they do not necessarily have a religion or God to worship. Nevertheless, they do not impose harm to others like how some of the most faithful and religious folks do. So, the answer to your question is yes.
There is morality without god. I don't look to the Bible, or any other 'holy' book, nor a god for morality. Morality is inherent within ourselves, it is a concept that changes through time and societal standards. It is rooted in empathy.
If you (assuming you do), or anyone else, didn't believe in god, would you go around hurting other people? Probably not, and there is the evidence there is no need for a belief in god, nor warranting that a god actually exists.
I don't belief in god.
I consider myself moral. People who know me consider me moral. People that don't know consider me to be not immoral on brief encounters.
There fore I can be considered moral.
Therefore religion is not a requirement for morality.
I don't believe that religion is the reason we treat eachother with love and compassion (or not).
I believe that we would do just fine without religion when it comes to treating eachother with a bit of respect.
Why am I willing to bet my life on this?
Let's take a look at the most innocent form of life: A child.
A child has never heard or seen anything about religion. Of course, their parents could teach them about religion from an early age, but it's not until a few years later that a child will really understand what's being said to them. They don't understand complete sentences at a younger age, they just pick out words they've been able to associate with something and that's how they learn to talk.
Although they were never taught this religion, they treat eachother with respect (most of the time! Don't get me wrong, children can be savage sometimes). They want to share their toys with friends, share their foods with people and animals, greet people on the street with a smile and without a second thought, dance and sing when they're feeling happy. They're shameless and want to share their life with others. All of these experiences will slowly die with age. The older we are, the less of these things we will do.
These are basic things we learn in the bible too, things like treating your neighbours with respect and what have you. But these children were never taught about the bible, so how could they know how to do this?
It's basic human instinct. We are born compassionate, it's the world around us which makes us evil (excluding the cases where some people just have an error in their brain making them the complete opposite of compassionate and loving).
We achieve morality through time. Evolution in early humans experienced the building blocks of morality. Time and experiences acted like a funnel through out the expansion of our species.
Nowadays, religion is not needed. And if you really look at the fundamental teachings of these religions, morality and values are far fetched. Im talking about stoning people, rape and even instructions on having your own slaves.
“You don’t need religion to have morals. If you can’t determine right from wrong, then you lack empathy, not religion.” - Randy Walker.
