I can't speak for the CoV's stand on this one, but here's how I define

I am an "amoralist" because I do not believe in the existence of a purely
objective standard of right and wrong. However, I do live more-or-less
according to a set of _subjectively determined_ guidelines which I call
"a code of ethics".

As for atheism, I have a difficult time seeing how an atheist could
believe in an objective standard of morality.
