New Ten Commandments

  1. Imagine that "God" exists if doing so somehow comforts or inspires you, but don't fall down and worship it.
  2. In all things, try to do no harm.
  3. Do not do unto others as you would not have them do unto you.
  4. Don't rush to judgment but give everyone the benefit of an open mind....
  5. Formulate laws as if you didn't know what your position in the pecking order would be.
  6. Treat all living creatures humanely.
  7. Always be willing to revise your beliefs according to evidence and reason.
  8. Do not indoctrinate your children, but teach them how to think for themselves....
  9. Support your country when it is right, oppose it when it is wrong.
  10. Question authority; challenge authority that appears illegitimate or contrary to reason.
