The 10 Commandments for atheists
« on: February 07, 2013, 07:48:59 PM »
10 commandments for atheists, basically copying the values/ethics and ideolgy muslims and christians brought onto humanity.

•Resilience: Keeping going even when things are looking dark.

•Empathy: The capacity to connect imaginatively with the sufferings and unique experiences of another person.

•Patience: We should grow calmer and more forgiving by being more realistic about how things actually happen.

•Sacrifice: We won't ever manage to raise a family, love someone else or save the planet if we don't keep up with the art of sacrifice.

•Politeness: Politeness is closely linked to tolerance, -the capacity to live alongside people whom one will never agree with, but at the same time, cannot avoid.

•Humour: Like anger, humour springs from disappointment, but it is disappointment optimally channelled.

•Self-awareness: To know oneself is to try not to blame others for one's troubles and moods; to have a sense of what's going on inside oneself, and what actually belongs to the world.

•Forgiveness: It's recognising that living with others is not possible without excusing errors.

•Hope: Pessimism is not necessarily deep, nor optimism shallow.

•Confidence: Confidence is not arrogance - rather, it is based on a constant awareness of how short life is and how little we will ultimately lose from risking everything.
