Over the past century, there has been a steep decline in religious adherence. However, some groups, including many Quakers, Universalists, Humanists and even Anglicans have continued to find benefit from religion, despite discarding their belief in a god.

In this panel, representatives from Quakers, Sea of Faith and Humanism discuss the idea that religion may be entirely human created, but may of value none the less.
