“Ethics is not a branch of theology at all but of philosophy, of which it has been an integral part since the time of Socrates. It is understandable that religious belief engenders strong moralistic feelings in believers, who may have no conception that ethics is possible without it. But arguments from faith have no credence at all in serious moral philosophy.”
