Quote From Another Evolutionist

Aldous Huxley, brother of Julian Huxley, wrote these words in “Confessions of a Professed Atheist”:

I had motives for not wanting the world to have meaning, consequently assumed it had none and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption.  The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics.  He's also concerned to prove that there's no valid reason why he should personally not do just what he wants to do.  For myself, as no doubt for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation.  The liberation we desired was simultaneously a liberation from a certain political and economic system and a liberation from a certain system of morality.  We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom."
