I am an atheist. For some reason I continue to try to live a moral life. Why?
I'm having trouble explaining to myself why I try to live a moral life despite the fact that I do not believe in any supernatural power. I know I would make an excellent bank robber or pickpocket and never be caught. But, for some reason I have not chosen that career path. Why not? I have no fear of retribution of any kind. Anybody else in a similar situation.
