I Am a Secular Humanist

Good Lord I believe in us!?!?!? 172 People

    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.

    "Refined religion sees the fundamental

    religious attitude not as belief in a doctrine but as a commitment to promoting the most enduring values. That commitment is typically embedded in social movements — the faithful come together to engage in rites, to explore ideas and ideals with one another and to work...

    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...

    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...

    Foxhole

    Because I'm not a theist, my wife's family loves to use the line about there being no atheists in foxholes. I argued the point halfheartedly, wondering if it were possible that I'd change my tune if I knew my doom was nigh (nothing good ever seems to be nigh). I had a 'fall...
