with. Religion, or the fear of punishment by some all knowing being that is always watching, is what makes guilt based on religious principles more effective in preventing wrong behavior. Forgetting about God for a moment, how many kids have acted good because Santa Claus might be watching--still some all knowing potential punisher. Nowadays when I hear a caught criminal say "I'm sorry", I automatically hear the unspoken part, "that I got caught."
