As an atheist, there's really only one "commandment" I try to live my life by.

Don't be an asshat (except on Fark)

Thou shalt not murder, lie, steal, ... LULZ just kidding (only retards would be dumb enough to fall for that stuff)

1.  We own Science, so be sure to use a smug tone when condescending to the muggles "aka religious folk"
2.  We own Logic and Reason, so constantly remind the religious people how irrational they are.
3.  The only things that deserve worship is that beautiful most perfect person In The Mirror, and if you have time give praise to the saints Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris, Nietzsche, PZ Meyers, etc..
4.  It's OK to pretend to tolerate the lesser of our kind who invoke the saying "I'm OK you're OK", since they are the only way we can infiltrate the religious and  subvert their moral base, but in the end just remember not to make it too obvious that you are pretending, even morans will accidentally notice if you over do it.
5.  Openly mock the religious people and slander them by any means possible.  But worry not, the retards aren't intelligent enough to notice, and even the ones that do think they must be polite when taking abuse, lulz, so let them have it don't hold back.
6.  I'm OK you're OK.  (wink wink nudge nudge)
7.  Hate God with all your Body, Spirit and Mind
8.  Nature is stuff you can touch with your tongue.
9.  Sex, drugs and rock n roll... FOR SCIENCE!!1! vote democrat
10.   Kill all the Christians and any sympathizers, lolz just kidding, I'm OK you're OK, seriously though yeah.

miss diminutive: They really shouldn't be called "Commandments", then.

Religion demands obedience and submission to their edicts and provide negative consequences (Hell) for those who don't obey; even one of the Commandments says that you can't have any other god above this one.

These atheist "commandments" aren't orders at all, rather suggestions on how to be a well adjusted, functioning member of society. There's no consequences involved with not adhering to them.

It's like atheists are expected to live through the application of reason.

Dead for Tax Reasons: Thou shall not laugh at believers for talking to their invisible friend in the sky

I can't see your dick, does that mean it doesn't exist?

monkey_licker: Christianity is perfectly rational, if you make the same presuppositions that Christians make. Most of us believe that there is a God who was involved in creation (not necessarily 6 days/6k years), that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God (when interpreted correctly which is where the trouble starts) and that there is more to the world than can be explained by empirical observation. In some extreme views of Christianity, violence and legal coercion are considered acceptable methods of dealing with those who disagree.

Atheism is also perfectly rational, if you make the same presuppositions that atheists make. Atheists seem to believe that the only valuable knowledge is empirical knowledge. Other forms of knowledge are inferior and dismissed. Anyone who does not hold to their ontological and epistemological presuppositions is irrational, and in some extreme branches of atheism, worthy of destruction.

As a Christian, I don't have an issue with atheists, or people of other faith traditions. You have a set of beliefs that you have arrived at based on a set of presuppositions and life experiences. Your presuppositions and life experiences differ from mine and so you have reached a different conclusion. I don't understand why it can't be that simple. Why does either side feel compelled to denigrate and attack anyone who disagrees?

Because your side is just a bunch of poopy-heads.

aagrajag: AverageAmericanGuy: There is but one atheist commandment: reject belief in a God.

All else is handwaving and bluster.

You left something out. Slight difference, there.

Being an atheist doesn't mean you have to reject that others can believe in God. Just that you reject God.
