Since atheists don’t have religion, what sort of philosophies do you personally hold? Why?

Answer by Kris Rosvold:

I tend to lean towards the Seven Principals of UU.

Our Principles

Unitarian Universalists hold the Principles as strong values and moral teachings. As Rev. Barbara Wells ten Hove explains, “The Principles are not dogma or doctrine, but rather a guide for those of us who choose to join and participate in Unitarian Universalist religious communities.”

  1. 1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  2. 2nd Principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  3. 3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  4. 4th Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  5. 5th Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  6. 6th Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  7. 7th Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

These are very similar to the Principals enshrined in the US Constitution if you read it, and the Amendments which are incorporated by Ratification.

The two Amendments I take exception to are the 16th, and the 27th because these two are specifically, and intentionally, designed to allow the Federal government and "our" Congress to evade the rightful controls of Citizens over Their government.
