The Ten Commandments of Atheism

Filed under: Atheism, Christianity, Ten Commandments, Religion

The day after 9/11, six years later. Can’t let too much liberal grass grow under our feet. Democrats continue to stall judicial nominees, Planned Parenthood is trying to increase the rate of abortions, and Americans United for Separation of Church and State Severing Religious Freedoms is attempting to toss a Bible history class.

So let’s get right to the heart of this liberalism. They don’t like the fact that most of our country’s laws are closer related to the Ten Commandments than any secular document.

Never fret, liberal friends. I have a treat for you today. I am linking Brandon Vallorani’s Ten Commandments of Atheism, which only the astute reader will recognize shadows God’s Ten Commandments.

I. Thou shalt have no other gods before the State.

II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any Church building or any State document, which mentions the God of the Bible.

III. Thou shalt not take the name of Charles Darwin in vain.

IV. Remember the five weekdays of Public Education, to keep them holy. For the Church cannot overcome in one day what the Public Education system teaches in five days.

V. Honor thy Mother Earth and thy Father Time, that your days may be spent without purpose in this life.

VI. Thou shalt not kill anyone who is guilty of murder, but only those who are weak, unwanted, or hinder the greater good of humankind as determined by the State.

VII. Thou shalt commit adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bestiality, and any other type of sexual perversion, which destroys the family as the foundation of society and gives tyrannical power to the State.

VIII. Thou shalt steal the wages of thy neighbor by enacting new taxes, and then, redistribute these hard-earned wages to those whom you have enslaved through the welfare system.

IX. Thou shalt not bear any witness against the Theory of Evolution.

X. Thou shalt covet the blessings of a Christian nation, but deny the Providence of God who can alone grant such blessings.

Atheists like to believe that they are little “gods” and that they are the ultimate authority over their own lives. This is a childish pipe dream because nature abhors a vacuum. The Tyrannical State always assumes the place from where God was removed.

Few communities are the exception to a society in which God is absent where the state does not rule. Perhaps a hermit living alone on an island would qualify. Communist Soviet Union and North Korea are certainl extremes where the Ten Commandments of Atheism would most undoubtedly apply.

Consider the following from Positive Atheism:

The Constitution of the United States of America protects the Religious Liberties of her citizens by prohibiting the government from making decisions regarding the religious practice of individuals or even sects. Unfortunately, certain rapacious citizens are busy trying to force everybody else to practice the same religious rituals and honor the same religious codes that these insatiable gluttons practice — rather than allowing each individual and sect to make these decisions as they see fit. (emphasis mine)

However do not discount socialist countries in Europe (France), Canada, and even the constant tugging to the left by liberals in America as conclusive examples of atheism. Fortunately, America has a framework that has a Christian basis to it, unlike more liberal countries that, in lacking solid moral foundations, are quick to adopt the latest and greatest perceived good for the people.

So then, is atheism a religion? Not according to some.

Atheism is not a religion. A failure of the of government to endorse one set of religious beliefs does not mean that the government is, therefore, forcing atheism on people.

But religion qualifications are not determined by simple a government-endorsement litmus test. Atheism most surely is a religion. It is requires faith in a worldview that decrees material evolved over time. Since the human brain is included in this evolved matter, I would question the trustworthiness of anything a by-chance evolved chunk of gray matter that evolved from the goo could think up as an acceptable authority.

I echo C.S. Lewis, “If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too. If so, then all our thought processes are mere accidents—the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the materialists’ and astronomers’ as well as for anyone else’s [thought processes]. But if their thoughts—i.e., of Materialism and Astronomy—are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident would be able to give correct account of all the other accidents.”

These adorable little poems and obvious twists on existing documents like the ten commandments might be fun to read, if they weren’t just crammed with every bit of incorrect, false, and stupid blather the writers can stuff into them.

Parody or satire is the product of a clever mind. It’s more than just shoving together knee-jerk words.

We’re trying to increase the number of abortions? That’s news to me. Last I checked, it’s precisely 3% of our business. We do far more in the way of cotraception.

Incidentally, your cite is an opinion peice. Opinion peices tend to be….well….opinion. Not fact. Maybe you can take a look at our mission statement and tell me what’s evil about providing immunizations to children, free mammogram screenings for low- and fixed-income women, and prenatal care. I realize most people aren’t aware the full scope of our services, but that’s mainly because people like you are trying to convince everyone that ALL we do is abortions.

==Oh, and atheism is a religion like bald is a hair color.==

Really?? Heh.

Then go read Kaufman v McCaughtry, from the Seventh United States Court of Appeals. The court ruled that atheism IS a religion. The case has gone unchallenged from there.

All on the public dime. Planned Parenthood gets federal subsidies to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. That has to stop.

In any case, even IF what you say there is true, 100% of your business is 100% pro-choice=pro-abortion=wrong-choice.

So, Libs “DON’T” elevate the State above God???? That’s news!

Libs DO rely on the State above all else, and that’s why Libs cannot be Christian. They can “say” they’re Christian, just as those who claim to be homosexual “say” they’re homosexual. People can say a lotta things.

The rest of the thing also rings perfectly true.
