Why not find what you feel good about and just go practice that? If someone asks how you managed to become a good person and you think religion is why then help that person. If no one asks just keep doing what works for you.
In the end I think it comes down to, "what would ______ (fill in Yahweh, Muhammed, Jesus, Joseph Smith's White Salamander etc.) want me to do in this situation?"
If you feel strongly you have "His" answer to the question you're good to go. The only thing I miss from organized religion was the Catholic crucifix's with the secret compartment holding holy oils.
Anyway, I'm an old retired reprobate. The women who are single and age appropriate for me are pretty scary. No matter what they claim they're shopping for Mr. Fixit with a fat IRA. (I hide my tools just in case)I'm afraid I've simply outlived most of the opportunities for SIN.
