Not sure. Can't make out the meaning of some of the terms. I don't think that secularism has abandoned ethics entirely, although there is little philosophical education at all in the west. Mind there are lively online communities dedicated to the subject. I think that Western epistemology which is popular is empiricism, and the idea of testing falsifiable hypothesis in the scientific manner. So scientism (in perhaps a diluted form) is at least a influential trend in intellectual circles. I think that it is OK so long as its limitations are known. It cannot reveal everything (at least not yet). I think that Muslims have a right to knowledge, not just religion inspired but scientific as well. I see no harm in science intelligently and ethically used, and it can do miracles in terms of medicine and technology. I think though that scientifically geared people can become aggressive towards faith, which is harmful to the religious life. I think as a believer in God there are things beyone experimental laboratory style proof, and instead truths of the heart and a more subtle level of experience which secular science cannot analyse completely. But i am not afraid of secular science, in fact I love it. As for ethics, I think that science can help us achieve our goals once we have set them. The idea of human fluorishing and welfare seems attractive, and for instance we can learn CBT or good diet to improve our health of mind and body. These are not to be assailed but to be utilised just as we utilise cars and mobile phones without much fuss. So whilst empiricism might not provide an ethic in and of itself without a little thought from us, secular science can certainly give us a hand once we discern where we want to go.
