If there was no God would you behave differently?

Most people behave in society because they believe in a Higher Power and don't want to get in trouble with the law or face God for their deeds on Judgement Day. So if there is no God, why worry about how you act? Why worry about the law? In the LA riots the police were powerless and weren't much of a deterrent. Why does not everybody do what they want if there are no consequences for their actions?

I'm an atheist, and I see the problem. The problem here is, that if Heaven didn't exist, our current lives would have no meaning because there is no later compensation, allowing us to fuck up as much as we want. But it isn't exactly like that.

You have to see life as a compensation of itself. You only have one, and you (probably) would try to aim at using it in the best way possible. So you aim not to screw up so that you'll be able to enjoy the rest of it. For the better of society murder is, in most cases, illegal, leading to a unfavorable punishment if caught.
But that's ethics. What about our own morals, in our heads willing to commit something unlawful but knowing we can't? What if we just eliminated all the laws? Society would have a great step back, going back to "who's stronger wins", but eventually we'd go back to another law system to balance violence out because the stability is favorable for most members of the society.

I am an atheist, so I don't believe god exists anyway. I behave with logic and empathy towards my fellow man. I am not being held responsible by an all knowing deity, but I am being held responsible by the other 7 billion people on this planet. If we all work together, it makes things a lot easier. I don't need god looking over my shoulder to not act like an ass.
