Have you ever wondered Why?
What did you wonder Why?

Why are we alive?

Why are we on this planet?

Why do all have to die?

Why kill someone?

Why steal something?

lol jrvc.

Dot, I think that many people think about the things you've listed, and experience along with it a certain sensation. I'm going to call this sensation "existential angst", and because I'm also in before religion argument, I suggest looking up Kierkegaard's thoughts on the matter.

Alternatively one could go all buddhist philosophy and seek the ways to just "be".

Haha 'why is this post so boring', good one ngfan.  But to answer your question, it probably ends up in a religious discussion.  If you have religion, that is why you don't kill someone.  If you don't believe in a god, then... you really have no reason not to kill anyone.  Scary thought.

I don't know if I ascribe to the belief that everyone who doesn't believe in God thinks it is OK to kill someone (or that there is no reason not to). You know, morality is not owned solely by Christianity. Many other religions (and society in general) hold morals to a high standard, as do non-religious people.
