Indeed I think we should make an effort to think "Beyond Good and
Evil" and overcome the relevant christian (or muslim) legacy in this

This of course does not mean than a policy cannot be considered as
good or bad, either in terms of suitability to its declared goals, or
on the basis of some shared values.

For instance, I think most transhumanists may agree that bioluddite
prohibitionism is bad without any need to resort to some kind of
cosmic manicheism or cultural imperialism.
