How about your own ideas on the subject?
I've never really thought about it, to be honest.

The brain works based off a billion little electrical impulses interacting with eachother, or something, and when that electricity goes out it means we're dead. So... I guess that could be considered a soul...

So do you believe we're solely a chemical engine then, that has its time but eventually wears out?
 
A combination of my own moral code and a desire I can prove that I'm able to be good without an all powerful entity telling me to be.

Also, you know, I don't want to go to jail which I guess kind of cancels out that second one.
Why do you have a moral code? Surely it'd be easier to live life without one?

Why do you feel the desire to be good?
 
Good Feels Good.

Also, again, I like not being in jail.
Don't link to TV tropes, I want to know your opinions on the matter.

So you presumably like being out of jail because you like your freedom, correct? Why, when there is surely only the illusion of freedom? You said it yourself, you will be detained if you do certain things. You will be socially outcast if you do others. So is there really much difference between the metaphorical cage society places us in or the literal jail cell?
 
That is my opinion. I just linked to TV Tropes out of habit.
I don't want to read someone else's take on the matter, I want to read yours. So explain it in your own words.

To expand on the point I made above, if we are just chemical engines and that life is merely a set of chemical reactions, why shouldn't we live in complete sin? There's no greater power to answer to, all emotions are just chemical reactions anyways so it in theory it should just be about hitting that right reaction as much as possible until we burn out?

Those are my own words.

My answer is three words: good feels good.

Cause life's an adventure and repetition is boring. You can only repeat something so many times before you get tired of it.
