Is there such a thing as conscience?

Started this discussion. Last reply by DarkBlack Oct 17, 2012. 8 Replies

Conscience is a concept extrapolated from the feeling I, and some people, get when contemplating a questionable action, or after having committed one.  It will either make me make a correct choice,…Continue

Jerry Wesner replied to Christine's discussion What exactly is "sin" anyway??
"Somewhere in childhood I got that "Sin is anything that separates us from the Holy Spirit."  Since we here reject the concept, that would put us in a constant state of sin.  Then I got that whatever a person does in life (at that…"

Jerry Wesner replied to Anthony Jordan's discussion Armageddon
"Anthony, your hypothesis reads like a bad novel.  Unfortunately I don't mean bad in the sense of poorly written; I mean nightmare-inducing.  To me it seems the world's people are divided approximately in half: one half operating…"

Jerry Wesner replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion Why Atheists can't be Republicans
"First, I agree that an atheist can be a blithering idiot, though I've never met one.  And an atheist can be totally selfish -- see Ayn Rand.  So I never call myself an atheist.  I'm a Humanist.  That's an atheist…"

Hi to Jerry Mesner in Albuquerque. Welcome to this great meeting place with its rational people who recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
