a conscience i defined by the boundaries of society of which religion was a foundation and a fore-runner to a code of laws - re: Babylon/Sumer where the first such recorded rules were found -> to modern day law

Yes, you need something to base a 'conscience' on. So saying that everyone has one does not explain why morality exists.

I would like to know if anybody has proof of there religion.
There's no such thing as true proof except mathematical proof. things can only be taken to be proven beyond reasonable doubt. Then the question of what do u define as reasonable comes in. Religion or anything else, for example Newtons laws can never be truely proven, the truth of these can be only be described with varying degrees of likleyness.

In my opinion i believe its very likely religion is an invention of man first through simple superstition then it was developed on as it was realised it would be an excellent device to control people.

morality exists because of the need to work together - hunter-gatherer tribes had to join and cooperate and the only way they could do this was by trusting each other and through trust a bond developed. Then they became a society - morality exists as a pre-requisite of society and societal values - conscience is whether u abide morally by these fixed rules which denote what and what isnt morality

Otherwise known as a form of social control, I agree with you to an extent.

Religion - by the very meaning of its existence - has no undeniable proof.

No, I'm an athiest but realise most things concerning religion are only opinions. It's not a science so we can't claim to dismiss beliefs based on our personal outlooks.

i am going to be dismissive because we are running into the age-old debate of whether there is a god or not - Religion is there to institutionalise people into certain groups and to provide those people with hope that there is a higher being - personally i do believe in God and that in pursuing religion i am in some way satisfying his requirements of me
