Does conscience equal intelligence, at least to some degree?
To some degree, yes. It has to. Examples from nature are easiest. There is a reason we call someone "dumb as a rock," or "clever as a cat." We see these things around us providing observable truth.
It should need to be clarified by those words... conscience and intelligence and what they mean to you.
I would think that they would normally go hand in hand, but then there are the sociopaths that can be very cunning and yet seem to have little conscience.
My final answer... no, not necessarily.
History shows that there are so many intelligent people but some of them did not have a conscience when we look at the atrocities they committed.
Intelligence is a matter of the mind, conscience is in the nature of emotion, I think.
