I am a member of the American Humanist Association. Anyone else?
Perhaps not card-carrying, but I suspect we do.
As Ken said not a member of any such group but pretty much describes my way of thinking.
Most humanists would agree with the ideas below:
There are no supernatural beings.
The material universe is the only thing that exists.
Science provides the only reliable source of knowledge about this universe.
We only live this life - there is no after-life, and no such thing as reincarnation.
Human beings can live ethical and fulfilling lives without religious beliefs.
Human beings derive their moral code from the lessons of history, personal experience, and thought
I don't even know what that is
More or less just another word for atheist.
No, I am not.
I’m ex Catholic and wasn’t very religious after that....
I had a horrid summer with anxiety,depression and health issues....started going to church with a friend...it’s not catholic...all they do is really just read the Bible and sing a few songs. It’s a small church with the nicest people...the pastors are all nice also...funny too!
They do this without pay...and nobody ever bugs you for donations....but I do ...different amount each week depending on what I have.
I look forward to Sunday’ and church for some reason I feel the safest when I’m sitting there for an hour...don’t know why.
I don't identify as such I have never been able to take religion seriously. I can appreciate the attraction and concede that there is value to it. But it's not for me.
Welcome Frank. I look forward to your participation.. Humanism BTW is not a religion
