How do you come to understand good and evil, right and wrong without a transcendent signifier?


If these concepts are merely social constructions, or human opinions, whose opinion does one trust in determining what is good or bad, right or wrong? "To sustain the belief that there is no God, atheism has to demonstrate infinite knowledge. Because their declaration is tantamount to saying, "I have infinite knowledge that there is no being in existence with infinite knowledge." -- Ravi Zacharias

    Was it their consciousness or their conscience that they knew that they had committed a wrong? One cannot have knowledge of right and wrong if they are not consciously aware the conscience.
