What is Humanism

A new page! "Humanism" by Vexen Crabtree (2011)

Humanism is the approach to life based on rational thinking and includes ethics based on our shared human values and on human compassion. If you live life without religion and strive to do good within society just for the sake of doing good, then, you are a natural humanist. Humanism's core belief is that everything has a natural cause rather than a supernatural cause, therefore it falls under the banner of philosophical naturalism and the vast majority of humanists are atheists. Humanist activists typically battle for human rights and for secular politics. Secularism, promoted by secularists, is the belief that religion should be a private, personal, voluntary affair that does not impose upon other people. Public spaces and officialdom should therefore be religion-neutral. Secularism ensures that religions are treated fairly and that no bias exists for a particular religion, and also that non-religious folk such as Humanists are treated with equal respect. It is the only democratic way to proceed in a globalized world where populations are free to choose their own, varied, religions.

It is my deep conviction that pure humanism will be the religion of the future, [of] man — all of life, sanctified and raised to the level of a moral value.
-- Ernest Renan (1848)

So, if and when you fill in the census, what are you putting down?

Well, Satanist / Church of Satan.

Hopefully more of you than Jedis this time. But I'm hoping that the "No Religion" campaign works.

I am glad you are writing again.


Thanks - I've spent most of a year editing/trimming and improving, so I haven't actually been unproductive... I tend to only announce new stuff on LJ, rather than routine edits.

I'm pleased you're still on FB!

My sympathy goes out to you. You not only sound like an atheist, but you're also screwed up big time mentally. You're so called Peacefullness is a joke. Its all make-believe and you like to fool yourself. Good luck in the future because you'll need lots of luck to escape Hell and your knashing of teeth and wailing. You no doubt hate Jews as well. Good grief. Put yourself out of your own misery.
