    Yes I Am

    i learned this term last year and found myself immediately.  i had gone my whole life thinking i was just judgemental, cynical, self centered and just plain wrong (not sure else how to describe it) and alone in my thinking.  i get turned off by demeaning jokes about...

    I Am

    I didn't really know what one is, until I read Jerry Falwell's book on the subject. He was quite upset at us, we were ruining the country. By the time I finished his book, I was proudly proclaming myself a Secular Humanist.

    I Am a Secular Humansit

    well just wanted to say something. I am a secular humanist and I have raised my children this way as well with my lifelong partner. I am a non religious person and I just wish there was more tolerance of people who are different in the world. Less wars, less fighting, more...

    Personal Responsibility And Morality

    One of the chief complaints by Christians about non-believers is that we have no code of morality. There's nothing stopping us from going on a murder spree because we expect no eternal damnation from that act. So for anyone who is a little confused about the code of morality for...

    Me Too !!

    I just found out that this group existed. Neat! I have always been secular, and for many years have been a humanist, but I did not know that there was an actual term that generalizes my beliefs. Actually, the first time I heard the term was when I took this neat online religion...
