Two professing atheist authors recently held a contest in which they asked followers to “rethink the Ten Commandments” and come up with “an alternative secular version … for the modern age.”
Lex Bayer and John Figdor, authors of the book “Atheist Mind, Humanist Heart,” launched the contest last month to “open up for discussion what gives life meaning when secular culture is on the rise.”
The crowdsourcing competition invited atheists and humanists around their world to submit a commandment, which was then voted on by their peers, as well as a panel of 13 judges. The global contest resulted in over 2,800 submissions from 18 countries worldwide.
“Experience as wide a range of pleasures as possible, without excess or harm to others,” one submission read.
“The infinity after your death stretches out as the one before your life,” another said. “Enjoy your short window, lucky one.”
