Religious Skeptics Should Question Their Moral Theology

In this episode, Ben Bayer reads aloud his article, “Religious Skeptics Should Question Their Moral Theology.” In that essay, he argues that even though more secular people have rejected God and religion as such, they should take one more step and reject the conventional morality that comes from traditional religious beliefs. “Many secular people who have thrown off the religion of their parents have scrutinized at least some of their most provincial beliefs about ethics,” says Bayer. His article was originally published in New Ideal, the Ayn Rand Institute’s journal, on June 17, 2023.
