If you are a non- believer in, all that you do is being recorded in the heavens, why be moral when no one is looking?
If there are no records and no witness, why not do anything you want?
If no one sees you do it, then is it a deed not done?
If all of this is true, then why do we have a conscience, where did it come.
We are told in scriptures that our conscience is our natural way of doing God's will in the absence of his Law.

Again you demonstrate the complete lack of understanding of the concept of survival of the fittest as used in evolutionary terms. Please dont use language you have no concept of.
Eloquent non response, I think you are the one lacking schooling in the subject matter. And with that dig up your transitional forms that do not exist in the paleontological record, only pure speculation.
Any more responses from the fairy tale camp?
I hope you are not going to use that list to address the millions of other specie let alone the nonexistent transitional forms in the hominid tree that you allegedly come from. And without DNA that list is speculative at best.
Michael: you deserve much worse responses than you are getting. You are now demonstrated to be bigoted, ignorant and anti-science.
Are you aware there is almost no one without a religious chip on their shoulder, who has looked at the evidence carefully, who rejects evolution? The anti-evolution camp are almost 100% theists.
That this does not concern you is the problem.
Since when is approx. 6 million years since we split from Uncle Monkey a short expance of time?
Evolutionary adaptation can be swift- on a geological time scale.
The planet is about 4 Billion years old- plenty of time for life to naturaly occur, and evolve into the miriad of life we see now and the 99% of life that has gone extinct.
So given that we know evolution can, did, and does happen-from countless areas of research in the sciences. There is no question begging.
How do you know other higher primates or dolphins can't contmplate ficticious gods?- it's obviously easy for you and many other humans?
I would think they are smarter than that as well as we should be.
6 million years is still very recent yet the evidence of transitional forms between species of hominid superbly adapted for their environment is non-existent. Survival of the fittest coupled with mutation is simply the best scientific explanation at this time awaiting to be dethroned are proven in the case of hominid evolution.
How short do you think they are?
"The ability to even contemplate God, is not found among higher primates":
1. how do you know that?
2. Even if it's true, I would suggest that it points to a flaw in humans...
"God" is the product of our over-active pattern detection apparatus. We assign agency to many phenomena, sometimes correctly, often not. It was a crucial skill in our evolution, in that false positives were not likely to cause our death, but false negatives would. So our engine is skewed towards being over-positive. There's no mystery there. We're very weak, physically, compared to most other animals. So our only defense is our ability to quickly detect a threat and to flee. When we have to fight, we lose.
To even conceive the concept of God is attribute without evolutionary drivers. Higher primates are superbly adapted for their environment with instinctive social order.
