In your opinion, does a person have to have a religion of some sort to have morals/moral compass in life?

I recently read an article talking about the evolution of man's ability to reason - which gives me hope.  Because of this, I think that possibly, thousands of years ago, when mankind was in its toddler/teenager stages - then yes, morals may have needed to be dictated by a "GOD" - with punishment and rewards.  

Do I think we need it now?  No.  Not at all.

 no, i also do not believe having religion automatically gives you morals, if that were the case there would not be so many sex abuse cases involving religious people.

No, not at all.  I know some very religious people who have no morals whatsoever, and some atheists who are more moral than the most conservative person I know.
