By definition, humanism is a “progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.”
Personally, I admit to an inability to criticize humanists for what they believe. You may, because your parents taught you differently, or you “found Jesus” while you were incarcerated – the main reasons most people believe the unreasonable. Regardless of the origins of your belief, it seems logical to me, we should agree on our goals for the greater good of humanity, and about the ethical life we should lead in relation to each other and to the planet we share.
We can disagree on what comes after, we can ignore science altogether, and we can consider ourselves educated if we graduate kindergarten. But we must come together in an effort to tolerate almost everything but killing each other. Please, we don’t need assault weapons; we have safer ways to find food than shooting it with an AK47. Stop making missiles with atomic warheads; we have Kofi Annan to deal with the lunatics in Africa and the Middle East. And stop killing animals we can’t eat. Let’s get back to helping the poor – suggested in a book you read once – and help elect a few humanists to lead us.
