I Am a Secular Humanist

Good Lord I believe in us!?!?!? 207 People

    here's my problem: as a secular humanist by

    definition I am both critical of religion and against bigotry. I'd like to live in a world where we all coexist but with Christianity and Islam, specifically, this seems impossible. they are both intolerant of other beliefs. since they both condemn each other it's impossible...

    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...

    I Am

    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...

    --We have the same job

    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...
