A Moral Vaccum

From a debate between two evolutionists: Lanier is a computer scientist; Dawkins is a professor at Oxford and an ardent atheist.

Jaron Lanier: ‘There’s a large group of people who simply are uncomfortable with accepting evolution because it leads to what they perceive as a moral vacuum, in which their best impulses have no basis in nature.’

Richard Dawkins: ‘All I can say is, that’s just tough. We have to face up to the truth.’

– Evolution: the dissent of Darwin, Psychology Today, p. 62, January–February 1997.
