“An Amoral Manifesto”

The philosopher Joel Marks has an interesting article, “An Amoral Manifesto,” in the latest Philosophy Now.

He argues for a kind of amoralism (which seems correct to me). He also affirms the theistic argument that without a God, there cannot be the kind of (hard) morality as we usually understand it. That also seems to me to be correct. Hence, since there is, in all likelihood, no God, there is also no morality.

All of this I can mostly agree with. The interesting part is that he’s recently been deconverted from a belief in morality, and compares it with being deconverted from God-belief. I’ll be curious to see how Marks develops this further.
