Because the voice of conscience is often blocked out by ignorance, greed and hate, so much so that it can't even be heard. So because you can't hear it for yourself, someone else is there to tell you what it says.

If you want to live you must partake in atleast killing plants for food and if there was nothing else then you would have to eat animal based food.
So conscience is very gentle and it can be used against you, wich issomething you should guard against, since no mater what you might have done, while you are still a human you can go back to being good and you do that by following your conscience, but not by wallowing in guilt.
So its OK in life to be reasonable.

The fact I can prove it with the scientific method and through countless trials with the same result can prove that I am indeed typing through my phone. I don't need faith to tell me that my phone will type. I've had enough experience, use of human sense to tell me that it will type.
