Secular Humanists chime in!
Keep in mind, you don't have to be agnostic or athiest to be one - there were many famous Christian (and even Islamic) Secular Humanists....

2. Secular - check!
Edited on Tue Dec-05-06 03:22 PM by Kutjara
Humanist - eh, not so much. There are far too many flawed examples of the breed walking around for me to consider them a basis for moral philosophy. Except, perhaps, as a counterexample. So I'm a secular antihumanist, I guess.

15. It's not whether humans do live by a moral philosophy...
...but can humans form a moral philosophy. One worth living at least...

9. Right here. Just got an email about a Secular Humanist meetup actually
Probably about destroying Christmas and bringing about the downfall of the country. Well, that or a small discussion of science.

18. Funny, I pretty much went directly from Jehovah's Witness to Secular

Humanist.

I even have the opposing online beliefs test, taken 3 years apart, to prove it :)

It was quite a wild ride.

ps... there may be christian or muslim humanist, but there are no JW humanist. I suppose I was as close as a JW could come to being a humanist, but I wasn't even close.

That's the only type of worship that makes any sense to me.

16. It's not a term I would use to describe myself
However, from what I've read of it, I suppose it could be an accurate description.

So... :hi:

19. Chiming in.
I don't feel we need a book written by humans to give us morals, and

I feel there are enough examples of good and noble human behavior that we have absolute potential for morality.

I like the phrase "secular humanist" - it has a positive ring to it while transcending religious differences.
