Religion Without Belief - Is it possible and does it matter?

Intelligent religious believers often respond to criticisms such as those of the so-called 'New Atheists' by saying 'We don't really believe any of that stuff.' What then DO they believe? They are likely to refer to 'metaphors', 'myths' and 'stories' - to a morality and a way of life - to identity and membership of a sustaining community. Has their position then ceased to be 'religious' in any substantial sense? Are they really humanists? And should we welcome this?

Richard Norman is a former Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Kent, one of the Vice-Presidents of the British Humanist Association, and Chair of East Kent Humanists.
