ABSTRACT
The article responds to a preceding thematic article in this issue by Hans Mohr titled "Evolutionary Ethics." The author objects to Mohr's assumption of a "naturalistic meta-ethic" as an unscientific and unnecessary claim. Also noted is Mohr's purported deism and his interpretive reliance on the cultural concept of memes popularized by ethologist Richard Dawkins.
