The New Ten Commandments - A Humble Secular Suggestion

An Examination of the Original Ten Commandments
The New Ten Commandments

Plus four more suggested by Richard Dawkins (2006:298-300)*:

(11) Enjoy your own sex life (so long as it damages nobody else) and leave others to enjoy theirs in private whatever their inclinations, which are none of your business.
(12) Do not discriminate or oppress on the basis of sex, race or (as far as possible) species.
(13) Do not indoctrinate your children.  Teach them how to think for themselves, how to evaluate evidence, and how to disagree with you.
(14) Value the future on a timescale longer than your own.
