Here is the entirety of our Holy Scripture:
If you believe that you did not create yourself, then it is logically impossible for you to be an atheist.

Verily, those who believe and do what is right, and humble themselves to their Lord, they are the fellows of Paradise;
they shall dwell therein forever.
Source: The Qur'an, Surah 11, "Hud"
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
Source: The Bible, James 4:10
Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard,
and I have come in response to them.
Source: The Bible, Daniel 10:11-13
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
The commandments, "Do not commit adultery," "Do not murder," "Do not steal," "Do not covet," and whatever other
commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself."
What is hateful to thee, thou shalt not do unto thy neighbor. This is the whole of the Law, the rest is only commentary
Source: The Torah, Shab. 31a
Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves.
Source: The Bible, Matthew 10:16
The shrewd part is just as important as the innocent part. Don't dismiss it.

The principle of compassion lies at the heart of all religious, ethical and spiritual traditions, calling us always to treat all
others as we wish to be treated ourselves. Compassion impels us to work tirelessly to alleviate the suffering of our fellow
creatures, to dethrone ourselves from the centre of our world and put another there, and to honour the inviolable sanctity
of every single human being, treating everybody, without exception, with absolute justice, equity and respect.
It is also necessary in both public and private life to refrain consistently and empathically from inflicting pain. To act or speak
violently out of spite, chauvinism, or self-interest, to impoverish, exploit or deny basic rights to anybody, and to incite hatred by
denigrating others—even our enemies—is a denial of our common humanity. We acknowledge that we have failed to live
compassionately and that some have even increased the sum of human misery in the name of religion.
We therefore call upon all men and women to restore compassion to the centre of morality and religion ~ to return to the ancient
principle that any interpretation of scripture that breeds violence, hatred or disdain is illegitimate ~ to ensure that youth are given
accurate and respectful information about other traditions, religions and cultures ~ to encourage a positive appreciation of cultural
and religious diversity ~ to cultivate an informed empathy with the suffering of all human beings—even those regarded as enemies.
We urgently need to make compassion a clear, luminous and dynamic force in our polarized world. Rooted in a principled
determination to transcend selfishness, compassion can break down political, dogmatic, ideological and religious boundaries.
Born of our deep interdependence, compassion is essential to human relationships and to a fulfilled humanity. It is the path to
enlightenment, and indispensible to the creation of a just economy and a peaceful global community.
Hippies, you're right, the establishment is full of BS. But so are you. And so are we. So let's all lighten up and have some fun while we change the world.
