I mean, if we are CREATED equal and endowed by our CREATOR with certain rights, that's one thing. But if we evolved because we were the most fit, most successful survivors, then all bets are off. The animal kingdom doesn't have right and wrong. Why do we? Anyone who believes in evolution should believe that killing someone is A-OK. survival of the fittest, baby. The only reason we could possibly have an internal or 'genetically programmed' sense of right and wrong is if we were created that way. Evolution certainly wouldn't go down that road. Questioning morailty, having pity, hesitating to kill...these things are weaknesses that would never evolve naturally in a 'survival of the fittest' environment. Just an observation.

I would rather torture someone to the point that they wish they were dead than actually kill someone.

Of course, you're completely discounting the third option: I think they call it "intelligent design" this week..

Appropriate sum of money and the perfect opportunity to get away with it.

Sometimes I question my sanity. Occasionally it replies.

Video games make me feel no emotion, i'll kill who ever the mission requires me to kill... Break into a penthouse filled with terrorists. No Problem. Save the Presidents daughter? No problem. Run over countless innocent pedestrians while stealing cars? Priceless.

No question. I'm also a certified firearms instructor (Law Enforcement) and have relatively high confidence in my effectiveness if I were to make that decision.

Property crime...take it, I'm insured. (I may kick your *** if I catch you, though)
This is the best post IMO...people get too caught up with their "stuff" I couldn't imagine killing someone over something I owned, not even the Jeep.

The one caveat would be of someone commented on my rims, id definitely kill for that.

Let them get away with it once, they'll do it again. Shoot them in the head, they won't do it again.
