"According to my current beliefs, nothing I do can change what happens after I die... I will simply decompose, everything I do is done in vein. It is a very grim belief, however it is what I think happens."

Here is why I think evolution is dangerous. The thought that nothing I do matters, it's all in vain, is dangerous for some people. If we are all just evolved monkeys, and when we die we just die, why should we even care what we do? Why should we hold ourselves up to a moral standard? Why don't we go into school and shoot our classmates?

Now, I'm not at all saying this is your thinking. But what do you think about right and wrong? If there is no God, and we are animals, then why is there a moral code at all? (Why do sane people think murder and rape are 'wrong'?)
