Apologies for the off-topic, I don't know any better...
I think that people's consciences evolve through the years as shown from what people in the past believed to be good, are now perceived as bad. It changes depending on social norms and conforms to our moral values.
In the past, societies were all disconnected however in today's modern world, we are all being connected with global communication and I suppose that changes our perception of what is good and evil in order to reflect on thoughts that will be beneficial to all... Conscience evolves along with social norms and moral values which change constantly as we are faced with new situations.
Sorry, I might be off-topic again.
