Our conscience does not tell us right from wrong. There have been many studies that show this. Our conscience is our inner voice which has been programmed by our parents, peers, and society at large. Why is it acceptable to stone a woman in the Middle East, but not here? Why was it acceptable to slaughter millions of Jews in WWII Germany but not in the rest of the world? Why is it ok to drown your own child in the river in China if it's a girl and you wanted a boy, but looked down upon other places?Sorry but the whole idea of right and wrong being regulated by our conscience is bupkiss.
