Consider this quote from Arthur C. Clarke; then answer the questions below it.

“One of the great tragedies of mankind is that morality has been hijacked by religion. So now people assume that religion and morality have a necessary connection. But the basis of morality is really very simple and doesn't require religion at all.” –Arthur C. Clarke
