Steve said: `After all, who can deny that we, uniquely among the animals, have intellect for things like math, medicine and science, emotions for love and hate, empathy for caring for each other, and creativity for art and music.
We alone can ask the questions of what we really are and why we're here, and to what purpose is our existence? What is good and what is evil and why is that so?'
Good point,Steve……………………...backed up by the Bible's inspired thoughts written Romans 2: verses 14 and 15.
14 For when heathens who do not have the law do by nature what the law commands, these, not having the law, are a law for themselves, 15
displaying as they do the work of the law in writing on their hearts, their own consciences joining in the testimony and their mutual thoughts bringing accusations or, as the case may be, defenses.
So, the Bible tells us why our conscience basically follows the good, because God wrote it in our hearts, even if claiming no religion or belief. See? (edited)
