Alain de Botton wrote up 10 Commandments of Atheism, which sort of rubbed me the wrong way so I wrote up a counter point on what I thought would be a better approach to the idea of secular virtues. And if you are interested in the facebook conversation or the reddit conversation (if one emerges) I've linked to those as well.
