What are your thoughts on the following seven principles?

I
One should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason.

II
The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.

III
One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.

IV
The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one’s own.

V
Beliefs should conform to one’s best scientific understanding of the world. One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one’s beliefs.

VI
People are fallible. If one makes a mistake, one should do one’s best to rectify it and resolve any harm that might have been caused.

VII
Every principle above is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.

  1. If people are fallible, then how do we know our actions and thoughts are reasonable, noble, wise, or justified?

    If we are simply the product of random chance, what dictates one’s morality, reason, or intelligence to be correct?

    What exactly is the standard? Is it an objective standard? Or would it be subjective to whomever deems it correct….would that be a fallible or infallible standard?

    Also, to those who are not aware, look up the seven tenets of satanism.
    That’s what the OP is.

  2. Matthew Kennedy only if the interpretation of the evidence is confirmed with scripture…

  3. Item VII gives me permission to completely disregard this list of written words. It’s self-refuting. Next.

    Besides, it’s from the Satanic Temple. Double-next.

  4. Some truth mixed with false hood.seems like contradictory advice. Where is this from? I will offer you 10 better rules…they are in exodus 20

  5. None of the above, other than the will and purpose of God, which includes many aspects of your list anyway.

    Mankind’s wisdom and understanding in the knowledge they think they am have gained is nothing compared to the knowledge of God.

    God is all knowing, unlimited and all powerful, why would I follow mankind rather than God? Who can compare?

  6. I think they’re subjective rubbish . This is how Satan deceives the world by making us think something is good when it is not

  7. So Matthew Kennedy – I take it you see yourself as a moral being who wants to follow objective moral values and would like to hold all others to account to hold and abide by these moral values..? Now wait where did I read that before – Richard Dawkins…? No – he said the consequence of his worldview was just “blind pitiless indifference” – strike him… hmm yeah I think “Dostoyevsky” was right when he said “without God anything is permitted”…. if all there is, is “matter and energy” – then there are no absolute morals – you cannot derive an “ought” without an “ought giver” that transcends all who “ought to”….. the truth is Matthew Kennedy – has proven here that he believes in absolute morals, that he is more than an animal, he has a soul, that innately knows that there are “oughts” that all humans must be bound to, and these show we are more than the process of random mutation…. God is right after all, in Romans 1, where it says all people innately know God exists, and their sin is the wilful suppression of this knowledge…
