New 10 commandments

Posted by atheistrising on May 14, 2011 at 8:30pm

1.  I will not believe in mythological gods, fairies, angels, souls that do not exist and cannot be proven.

2.  I will oppose parts of all religions that violate geneva convention of human rights. Like ones that force women to cover up from head to toe, that tell women that they cannot drive cars or ones that calls for killing of homosexuals etc.

3.  I will respect and help all the people in world irrespective race, region, religion, sex, age, health, disability, pregnancy etc. I understand I might disagree with religious people on various things but I am also coginizant of the fact they have right to believe whatever they want to believe as long as they do not infringe upon my rights.

4.  I will constantly question everything society tells me and will try to keep an open mind and use scientific inquiry to understand the existing world rather than blindly following the crowd.

5.  I will fight human trafficking, sexual slavery, drugs, poverty, global warming, global hunger, lack of universal health care, extinction of species, reduction of prison population, abolition of capital punishment etc through common sense science based solutions. Solutions maybe different like legalizing drugs or prostitution. I will have an open mind to solve the tough problems facing the world.

6.  I will work on keeping the religion and government separate [sp corrected].

7.  I will be more involved in the politics, elections and legislations. I will be alert I will read bills on the federal, state and counties and vehemently [sp corrected]. oppose the legislations that take away our equal rights.

8.  I will make sure the kids and next generation are taught good science and math. They should be able to know that earth is about 4.5 billion years old not 6000 years old etc.

9.  I will be proud of who I am when I asked about my religious preference I will proudly tell people I don't have one.

10. I will cherish and take care of the pale blue dot. I will think of big picture for earth and all the life on earth in general. Life is beautiful thing to be taken care of. It needs to spread across other planets if possible, we need to become a space faring species, take care of beautiful planet Earth, give a chance to other plants and species coexist with us save them from extinction.
