In terms, morality (TR:681) (LH:11) (TL:692) refers to []

Overview

An example of an atheist who used "religion" for guidance, can be seen, in part in Thomas Jefferson and the making of his Jefferson's Bible, as well as Alfred Rogers describing his atheism, and how he uses the basic tenets of Christian morality as guidance.[2]

Quotes

The following are related quotes:

“We shall use the terms morality, behavior, conduct, or constructive action in the same broad way. It may sound strange to speak of the morals of an atom, or of the way in which a molecule conducts itself. But in the last analysis, science can draw no fundamental distinction between the conduct of an animal, a bullet, or a freshman, although there may be more unknown factors involved in one case than in the other.”
William Patten (1920), The Grand Strategy of Evolution (pg. 58) [3]
