Is it possible society could become rational (dropping the god belief) whilst deriving its morality from religion’s best moral teachings?

    Perhaps, but that would be pointless.

    Belief in God is not irrational, Einstein.  Every year millions experience God for themselves.  You should, too.  Don't bother moving the goalposts.  It's more evidence than you have to shore up your fantasy that there is no God.

    No, it would result in dictatorships, endless wars, and the end of personal advancement

    Not at all.

    Religions, being as dishonest as they have long proven to be, do not have good morals at all.

    "Morals", more correctly called ethics, are decided by the majority of people in society.  Humans have rules, and every one of those rules comes from humans.  there is no other way to get rules other than to make them ourselves.

    The religious make atrocious rules, then blame it on goddunnit, which is obviously not the case at all.

    Is it possible you could become rational and start recognizing that God exists?

    but remember

    that we are dealing

    with silly monkeys, here.

    Who gets to decide which religion and which "best" moral teachings? 

  • We wrongly say that morals come from God so you can have one without the other.

    I think it is quite possible. Thomas Jefferson produced a New Testament version containing the moral teachings of Jesus and removed the supernatural.
