Humanism

Humanism is a secular philosophy focused on human values and concerns.

Wikimedia provides the following information about Humanism:

Humanism is a secular philosophy that espouses human reason, ethics, and justice, and the search for human fulfillment.

It specifically rejects religious dogma, supernaturalism, pseudoscience or superstition as the basis of morality and decision-making. Secular Humanism is a comprehensive life stance that focuses on the way human beings can lead happy and functional lives. Though it posits that human beings are capable of being ethical and moral without

religion or God, it neither assumes humans to be inherently or innately good, nor presents humans as "above nature" or superior to it.

Rather, the Humanist life stance emphasises the unique responsibility facing humanity and the ethical consequences of human decisions. Fundamental to the concept of Secular Humanism is the strongly held belief that ideology — be it religious or political — must be examined by each individual and not simply accepted or rejected on faith.

Along with this belief, an essential part of Secular Humanism is a continually adapting search for truth, primarily through science and philosophy.
