Are we moral because we believe in God,  or do we believe in God because we are moral?

We certainly don't need a God to be moral but if we are moral we often attribute some of the better
things in life to a power greater than ourselves.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

There are many moral people who do not believe in God and many immoral people who do believe in God.  And vice versa.  So, simple answer, no, we don't need a god for morality.

No god is needed, but stricter laws and harsher penalties may do the trick... A God never stopped anyone from doing immoral acts, but the punishment for doing so makes you think twice...
