Secular "Bible"?

Atheists often like to claim that their path is superior to that of the religious, because their ethics are based on philosophy or pure logic rather than an external standard. But the fact is no man is an island, and all morality is learned from wiser men and women. So, a prominent humanist has finally put together a "Secular Bible. Containing wisdom from a number of non-religious sources, it claims to try and provide a purely "human" approach to morality and ethics.

Apparently, it is #41 on Amazon's UK bestseller list. But somehow, I don't think we'll see it displacing the Holy Bible at the top of the list.

Following a "Secular Bible" is no better than basing your life's actions on "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People".
