I have been trying to make some New Year's Resolutions.
Someone sent me the Atheist Ten Commandments. I thought they were very good and were just what I needed to help me with my resolutions.First Commandment:
Do not do to others what you would not want them to do to you. Mind my own business
In all things, strive to cause no harm.Start a diet. Third Commandment:
Treat your fellow human beings, your fellow living things, and the world in general with love, honesty, faithfulness and respect.
Cook at least one decent meal a week for my mate
Do not overlook evil or shrink from administering justice, but always be ready to forgive wrongdoing freely admitted and honestly regretted.
Quit being Miss Mouse. Be a Rat on occasion.
Live life with a sense of joy and wonder.
Instead of watching TV, spend some time outdoors watching my mate mow the lawn.
Always seek to be learning something new. Spend more time in the NGF
Test all things; always check your ideas against the facts, and be ready to discard even a cherished belief if it does not conform to them. Let my mate have his way at least once this yearEighth Commandment:
Never seek to censor or cut yourself off from dissent; always respect the right of others to disagree with you.Let my mate have his way at least twice this year
Form independent opinions on the basis of your own reason and experience; do not allow yourself to be led blindly by others.
Tell the doorknockers to - - - - offTenth Commandment:
Is there a good reason I should be starting this stuff this year? And where did Ungodly drive 500 miles
