RE: Let's revamp the 10 commandments
Hi Grux33,
That's a pretty good list. Also HoC has some interesing amendments.

I think No.5 would be improved if you changed "judge" to "condemn". I used to pride myself on not being judgemental then a wise lady (half my age) embarrassed me by saying "what do you think of her?" pointing to a pretty girl walking along the street. Without thinking, I gave my opinion (background, education, taste etc. just because of her attire, her poise, what she was carrying). I was doing a Sherlock. She accused me of making judgements and she was right. Now I pride myself on not condemning people based on the judgements I make.... Live and learn!

Probably No.9 is my favourite.

The one strict rule I always go by relates to loyalty i.e. do not induce another to be disloyal. Roughly equivalent to screwing another man's ox. I guess the closest to this on your list is No.3 .

A thought provoking post. Thanks

OR let's stamp out the concept of commandments
I think we should opt out of the commandments game. There is no god or gods to hand down commandments.
Let's start with a list of rights - like the U.N. Charter of Rights - and work from there.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Let's revamp the 10 commandments
These are my 10.

1. Either everything is funny or nothing is.
2. Keep an open mind, but believe only that which can be proven.
3. Refrain from doing harm.
4. Respect everyone. Trust few.
5. Pay it forward.
6. The past is history, the future is a mystery, but today is a gift.
7. Strive every day to make someone else’s day better.
8. Never stop learning.
9. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
10. Laugh every day.

Do I get your gist.............Are there no rights existentially because rights cannot be given or "no rights' because a right conflates all other rights....................or something much deeper? Huh
