Is conscience learned or innate?
an innate conscience, one that has always been there, given to us by God... many do believe this, as its such a powerful tool, it concludes our morality, and therefore only somebody with omnipotence could be capable of creating this :D
I disagree with the above answer. Whether conscience is innate or not has nothing to do with its having been "given to us by God" or even with the existence of God. An innate and/or learned conscience could just as well be the result of our having evolved as social animals who have to follow certain principles, some of which are relative to a particular society, in order to survive and flourish.
I'm aware of innate (your word actual) conscience, or our innate goodness. I'm not aware of "habitual" conscience. But if I may infer, since you use the word habitual, then it implies conditioning; school, church, political, social, cultural, regional,friends, nationality, and all our acquired biases. Therefore; Habitual conscience is only a reaction to whatever stimulus we are experiencing at the present moment. While innate conscience is the real us, devoid of dualism, prejudices, preferences, affiliations…
no, there are two types of behaviors: innate and learned. obviously, the innate behaviors are known from birth and the learned behaviors are acquired after birth. Learned behaviors can modify innate behaviors such as teaching a baby not to babble but to learn English. Simplified: something LEARNED cannot be passed down genetically UR A FAIL EAT CAKE
