If atheists get their way in America, like they did in France during the Revolution, they will be forced to replace God's Laws with new laws. I've been wondering what these new laws would be like. So, to force atheists to be honest with themselves, I drafted the Ten Commandments of Atheism.

My inspiration came from Robert Winthrop, U.S. Speaker of the House in 1849, who said:

All societies of men must be governed in some way or other. The less they may have of stringent State Government, the more they must have of individual self-government. The less they rely on public law or physical force, the more they must rely on private moral restraint. Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the Word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet. It may do for other countries and other governments to talk about the State supporting religion. Here, under our own free institutions, it is Religion which must support the State.

Atheists like to believe that they are little "gods" and that they are the ultimate authority over their own lives. This is a childish pipe dream because nature abhors a vacuum. The Tyrannical State always assumes the place from where God was removed. Would you rather have God's Ten Commandments or be ruled by these Ten Tyrannical Laws of the State?:

I. Thou shalt have no other gods before the State.

II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any Church building or any State document, which mentions the God of the Bible.

III. Thou shalt not take the name of Charles Darwin in vain.

IV. Remember the five weekdays of Public Education, to keep them holy. For the Church cannot overcome in one day what the Public Education system teaches in five days.

V. Honor thy Mother Earth and thy Father Time, that your days may be spent without purpose in this life.

VI. Thou shalt not kill anyone who is guilty of murder, but only those who are weak, unwanted, or hinder the greater good of humankind as determined by the State.

VII. Thou shalt commit adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bestiality, and any other type of sexual perversion, which destroys the family as the foundation of society and gives tyrannical power to the State.

VIII. Thou shalt steal the wages of thy neighbor by enacting new taxes, and then, redistribute these hard-earned wages to those whom you have enslaved through the welfare system.

IX. Thou shalt not bear any witness against the Theory of Evolution.

X. Thou shalt covet the blessings of a Christian nation, but deny the Providence of God who can alone grant such blessings.

Atheists need to ask themselves whether or not they want to live in a society where these laws are at the foundation. What was the fruit of atheism during the French Revolution? Gary DeMar writes,

With no transcendent God to rule over them, no rights other than those granted by the State, and no laws other than those manufactured to keep the regime in power, blood literally ran in the streets. They couldn’t kill the enemies of the State fast enough. A new killing machine—the guillotine—was invented to speed up the executions of the enemies of the State.[1]

As for me and my house, we will be ruled by the Bible—not the Bayonet.
