Given the existence of ethical studies in philosophy, legal precedents in laws, societal norms, etc., why do we need religion to promote good behavior? Is "the invisible boogey man will get you if you're bad" scare tactic a valid way to promote positive behavior in an enlightened society that should realize that the boogey man doesn't exist? Shouldn't we rely on modern philosophical/sociological reasons for behaving a certain way rather than outdated religious reasons?
