Ecce Homo’s Commandments

Please note that this essay is being moved and will be shortly reposted at True Freethinker


  1. "Considering that atheism is forced by its amoral worldview to borrow morality from theistic systems, it is not in the least bit surprising that the first new commandment"

    Your consideration is wrong. Atheism does not have an amoral worldview. And if you extend what you say to 'atheists have an amoral worldview' then you are implying that theists are moral only because they believe in god. And if you are only moral because of god, clearly you wuold be amoral without him (or her), which makes theists fundamentally amoral.

    I do not need a god to make me moral, I am moral.

    To suggest that 'atheism borrows morality from theistic systems' is absurd. Do you have any evidence to back this up?

  2. Mr;
    Thanks so much for the comment.

    You have stated it as well as I could have hoped: you declare yourself moral.

    Yet, I must ask:
    What do you mean by “moral?
    What morality?
    From whence have you arrived at it?
    Who made you judge of who keeps or breaks that morality?
    What happens if you break it?
