The problem is it involves knowledge that is much more difficult to achieve. How am I to decipher what others want, I barely am able to scrap up an understanding of what I want. I'm with Adrianime and have a strong connection to the silver rule in terms of it being something that can be much more universally applicable, but my mind also just is that way. I am a very more internal inaction type of processor of ways about going onto steps. As those inclined to view things in those 4 elemental ways, a water type I believe.

But can I describe an Atheist Moral Code? No... and there you have it.

What do you think should be on an atheist moral code?

Yes, it's been done before, but now it's our turn. Big Grin

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

That is Kant and Nietzsche's objection. "How can you know what they want?" "Ask them." "What if they do not know what they want?" - checkmate Popper. In Popper's defense, he qualified it with "wherever reasonable", in that case it is not reasonable.

RE: Describe an Atheist Moral Code
DON'T BE A DICK


That pretty much covers everything.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
