What are the top ten virtues that a secular humanist should aspire to?

10.) Intellectual Honesty

..and let's not forget the prophetic ( Romero producer of Night of the Living Dead was inspired by MAtthew) MAtthew's Night of the Living Ancient dead.

MATT 27: 50-53

"The Jesus shouted out again dismissed his spirit, and died. And Look! the curtain ( HYMEN) secluding the Holiest Place in the temple ( VAGINA ) was split apart from top to bottom and the earth shook and rocks broke, and tombs opened, and many godly man and woman who had died came back to life again. After Jesus resurrection, they left the cemetery and went into Jerusalem, and appeared to many people there."

I think Genesis 19:30-38 would fit nicely into MAtthew's Night of the living ancient dead....

Christians and other folks infected with delusional beliefs think and reason like schizophrenics or temporal lobe epileptics. Their morality is dictated by an invisible friend called Jesus.

And the number one Bible verse that proves beyond any reasonable doubt that the Bible is truly the inspired work of a benevolent, omniscient godÖ

1.) Ladies and gentlemen, itís a tie for first!

Genesis 19:30-38

4 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house. 5 They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them." 6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him 7 and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don't do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof."

Donít butt fuck these male visitors! Please rape my daughters instead!


Mark 11:11-14

[11] And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple: and having viewed all things round about, when now the eventide was come, he went out to Bethania with the twelve. [12] And the next day when they came out from Bethania, he was hungry. [13] And when he had seen afar off a fig tree having leaves, he came if perhaps he might find any thing on it. And when he was come to it, he found nothing but leaves. For it was not the time for figs. [14] And answering he said to it: May no man hereafter eat fruit of thee any more for ever. And his disciples heard it.

If there is one thing Jesus canít stand, itís as goddamn disobedient fig tree! Eternal punishment for this outrage!
It is nice to know that to brighten our stay in Hell, at least there will be fig trees that bear fruit bountifully when they are supposed to.

The Bible also often curses whores. Christian Heaven offers a preponderance of terrified, stupid and inept virgins while Hell will have plenty of gals who know what they are doing and how to really please a man.

It is often said that, in Heaven, the streets are paved with Gold. Where Gold is as common as road gravel, it is no more valuable than road gravel.

Cal, I am atheistically skeptical about your extraordinary claim. Please cite evidence that Romero was in any way influenced by Mathew 27, or admit that you just pulled another bogus dot connection out of your arse.

5.) Accepting and appreciating the idea that if this life be the only one we have, it is not vanity, but rather infinitely precious for that reason.

Edit to add: I suppose this would fall under humility

3) Work to improve society in general. The humanist manifesto covers it all fairly well.

2) Self respect sufficient to work against those who would diminish and shackle us (anyone).

9) Fill two dozen blow-up sex dolls with helium & release them in St Peter's square - see if Ratzy jumps off his balcony.

8) Burn or cut an X into your forehead, grab an axe, light their house on fire and then run through it before they get out yelling about the end of the world.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.
