What happens to a murderer when they die? If they believed they were right?

The murderers who think they're doing it for a just cause, do they still get condemned in the after life?

Nobody knows if God is even real, and there are still discussions
It's the whole point of the board, to discuss what you think.

tldr; stop being rude for no reason.

life is not precious. human nature (just like most other carnivorous species) is inherently violent.

we are born to compete with each other, our society is only "harmonious" because there is enough goods to go around. if resources are limited, we wouldn't hesitate to kill each other.

Subjectively, it can be. And for me, is.

Violence somehow invalidates value? I like violence. It makes life more precious to me. l2subjective.

Look at this in a different perspective. It takes some luck for your zygote to successfully grow into what you are today. There are more factors working against you than for you in terms of embryonic development. Then you consider how earth is the only planet that has the best sustainability for life, and even then we are still in trouble.

So, I think the better word to use is "delicate."

No, there are still not enough goods to go around. I don't want to go all "economics" on you, but we still live with scarcity. Resources are very limited. Economics was created for the purpose of dealing with this scarcity.
