i tend to be buddhist and base myself on the "mystic law". shakyamuni taught the hinayana doctrines as having 500-precepts for women, and 250 precepts for men; however, we can not confuse the laws for those in the religious sangha with the common people who are living in their own community.
it is a common practice for people to confuse the two, and believe that priestly-laws are also for the common people of the land.
the real problem is that these are teachings, which can be construed as prohibitions, as well. prohibitions-against-evil-acts are many, they are the difference between vice-&-virtue.
almost all of the religions and social orders have a "prohibition against the taking of human life". nichiren daishonin writes:
"The first of the five precepts is not to take life, and the first of the six paramitas is that of almsgiving. The ten good precepts, the two hundred and fifty precepts, the ten major precepts and all the other rules of conduct begin with the prohibition against the taking of life.
Every being, from the highest sage on down to the smallest mosquito or deer fly, holds life to be its most precious possession. To deprive a being of life is to commit the gravest kind of sin.
When the Buddha appeared in this world, he made compassion for living beings his basis. And as an expression of compassion for living beings, not to take life and to provide sustenance for the living are the most important precepts. "

Noahide law, of course. That's my preference.

That's quite a law firm. What about the law firms of "Doowey, Cheatum and How," "Bickers and Bickers," "Slaughter and Slaughter," "Dumas and McPhail," and "Ditcher, Quick, and Hyde?"

Only the Catholic Church has the fullness if truth. Catholicism is the One True Faith. A person can know these things with certainty by reciting the rosary every day with care and sincerity.

Atheist law is based off of copying theists on morality for thousands of years
