Dear James:

It is not likely that I could explain anything to you.  Your mind is not open to any ideas that may conflict with your religious teachings.  The source of morally stems from the human animal being a social animal in order to survive the elements of nature, combined with a few million years of evolution.  It is usually wrong to kill another human being because others may not want that and what goes around may come around.  It is alright to kill another man in self defence or to protect others from being killed.  And it appears that it is also alright for religious people to kill religious people of another faith--how moral is that?

Dear Darwin,

I stumbled across your website and am intrigued by your ideas. Perhaps you could tell me specifically why is it wrong to kill another human being, and more generally what is the ultimate source of morality?

Thanks much,
