Could the god have decided on a different set of rules? Suppose the rules it made said that murder, theft and rape are good ideas? Would we still be bound to follow them?

We see some of "god's" rules in nature every day. Mothers killing their offspring if there are too many of them to nurse, or if they are "substandard." Males fighting aggressively over females and killing competing males. Animals withholding food from the weakest of the flock/brood/pride.

As humans we tend not to do these things, or at least we pay lip service to not doing these things. Why would "god" have one set of rules for everything else and a different one for us?
