Morals without Religion?

I have had a number of philosophical conversations with one of my teachers, I have great respect for his views, though there are very few of them that I agree with. One particular subject that keeps coming up is whether it is possible to have morals without religion. He feels that morals must be based on a religious structure, or belief in a god, I feel that morals are an inate part of each human being, and something that you do not need a god to get you to follow. I simply can't follow his ideas on this subject, and was wondering about other peoples views on this subject. This has kind of seperated from my conversations with him and I am simply wondering about other peoples views.
