1. The highest ideals are human intelligence, creativity and love. Respect these above all.

2. Do not put things or even ideas above other human beings. (Let's scream at each other about Kindle versus iPad, solar versus nuclear, Republican versus Libertarian, Garth Brooks versus Sun Ra— but when your house is on fire, I'll be there to help.)

3. Say what you mean, even when talking to yourself. (What used to be an oath to (G)od is now quite simply respecting yourself.)

4. Put aside some time to rest and think. (If you're religious, that might be the Sabbath; if you're a Vegas magician, that'll be the day with the lowest grosses.)

5. Be there for your family. Love your parents, your partner, and your children. (Love is deeper than honor, and parents matter, but so do spouse and children.)

6. Respect and protect all human life. (Many believe that "Thou shalt not kill" only refers to people in the same tribe. I say it's all human life.)

7. Keep your promises. (If you can't be sexually exclusive to your spouse, don't make that deal.)

8. Don't steal. (This includes magic tricks and jokes — you know who you are!)

9. Don't lie. (You know, unless you're doing magic tricks and it's part of your job. Does that make it OK for politicians, too?)

10. Don't waste too much time wishing, hoping, and being envious; it'll make you bugnutty.

Where does he get the right to shackle atheists with rules? Some atheist person might see one or more of these rules as an envasion to their rights to live life to the fullest.

Currently the top-read story at USA Today is Penn Jillette's "10 Commandments for Atheism," a list he created and turned into the best-selling book God, No! after Glenn Beck asked him to come up with a list of moral dictates for non-believers.

Hi Jennifer,

 

God gave us the Ten Commandments.  He is my God.  My "bar" for living is in heaven.

 

If Penn Jillette gave you your commandments -- then, that implies he is your god.  Your "bar" for living is surely set VERY low with such as him guiding you.

 

You might want to rethink who or what you will follow.  Just a thought.

 

God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,

 

Bill

Bill not everyone needs a god to guide them. You are obviously not someone that can make it in this world without the belief in something magical and superstitious to believe in. Sad really. I feel sorry for human beings that are so weak in mind and character that they can't seem to face this world without the hope and belief that someone up there is watching out for them. Must be very scary for you.

 

I don't worship any gods or Penn Jillette. I do think Penn is a very smart man and has a firm grasp on what it takes to be a productive, happy person. Maybe you should give his 10 commandments a try. Who knows you might actually be someone others could tolerate.

Just your OPINION, right, DA?

Just like it's MY OPINION that atheists like you are mising a spiritual side. As I have said before, you don't notice it because you can't miss something you never had. It's sad though, that anyone can be so spiritually blind that they miss out on all the beauty in life.

 

Just my OPINION.

Whats up with the penn&teller pair. I remember back when gofish/guffaw/cookey/uno and DF ran their nane in the ground. Hardly a day passed that they didn’t equate them to some superhero. People are sayin’ like man so what.

I suspect the atheists have done something, I don’t know what, but they are trying to nullify any recourse for the deed.  Christians likely would call them out on the deed. More than likely deeds against nature. If they can be successful in destroying Christian credibility to themselves they can bury the shame. I think Blair Scott realized the dilemma his constituents were in when Kyle Butt kicked his butt. As a resort Scott gave the atheist permission to lie. Scott then enlisted Jeremy Green to take the fall on Scott’s behalf.

Pretty simple to figure out when the atheist can peep through the same knot-hole with both eyes.
