Certainly won’t apply to all atheists, though I think much of what is said is a function of secular capitalist humanism – an ontology, a metaphysics of the self seems to pervade all of our moral behaviour. Remember, if you just get on with feeding the capitalist machine, why wouldn’t you be allowed to be your own moral adjudicator for the most part. Why wouldn’t capitalism seek in and of itself to become as secular as possible?
What do you think? A fair statement?
