I would say that morality can be devoid of subconscious belief if one goes about finding the objective morality through rationality. There is no subconscious belief behind the idea that you can't enjoy without being alive to enjoy. That itself is a rational judgment devoid of subconscious belief. If we are just going to pick rules out of our ass and call it morality--which is essentially what the common man's morality is--then they will be affected by your subconscious influences. If you choose values which are rational, then morality can be formed by picking out the best steps to achieve those values.
