Can you be a Christian, and not believe in God?

Just seen a debate show on TV, which had a segment about some people (One an Anglican Priest) who claimed to be Christian but do not believe god exists.

Through Theory and or fact regarding Evolution, anthropology, carbon dating etc clashing with the Bibles teachings, these people believe that Religion/Monotheism should be taken as a metaphor for the human ideal; love, peace, etc. As such they follow the teaching of Jesus without the part that assumes god is real...

Is this not Just like Edward Norton's Character in Fight Club? who attends support groups for Problems he doesn't actually have, Just feel part of a Group and make him feel better about himself?

can you be a Christian, and not believe in god?

(This is open for debate for other Religions to, its just the subject was between Christians and the Presenter)
