Atheists List ‘Ten Commandments’ Of Their Own, Mocking Christianity

A couple of atheists decided to have a contest in search of the best humanistic ten commandments, and the ten people who come up with the best entries will share the winnings of $10,000.00 together.

Lex Bayer and John Figdor, authors of the book “Atheist Mind, Human Heart,” came together and decided to crowdsource the 10 ‘ideal’ ten commandments in order to bring them into the contemporary world.

Atheists have to listen to a host of stories throughout the month, one of the more prominent being that Jesus was born on Christmas. In fact, in order to put the “Christ in Christmas,” Christians superimposed the day of Jesus’s birth onto the end of December, in part to erase pagan traditions affiliated with the solstice. “The church only settled on a Dec. 25 Christmas in the fourth century,” writes Andrew Santella for Slate. “The standard explanation is that the early church conflated its celebration of the Nativity with pre-existing pagan festivals. Romans had their Saturnalia, the ancient winter festival, and northern European people had their own solstice traditions. Among the features: parties, gift-giving, dwellings decorated with greenery.”

Nye is going to “win” the debate in the eyes of anyone who thinks that science is right about anything; Ham’s going to be similarly celebrated by a lot of hardcore Biblical literalists. The debate is the WWE for pseudointellectuals who spend too much time on Reddit, a made-for-YouTube event that will serve as a soapbox for Nye and Ham to stand on and shout.
