Stanislaus Humanists

Our Mission

The mission of the Stanislaus Humanists is to advance Humanism, an ethical and life-affirming philosophy free of belief in supernatural forces. Humanists advocate for equality between naturalists and supernaturalists and strive for a society guided by reason, empathy, and our growing knowledge of the world. Stanislaus Humanists encourage people to live informed and meaningful lives that aspire to the greater good.

What is Humanism?

Humanism is a worldview which holds that reason and science are the best ways to understand the world around us, and that dignity and compassion should be the basis for how you act toward someone else. Humanism is naturalistic. By this, we don't mean to say that there is no God. Instead, we say that there is no proof for the existence of God, any gods, the supernatural, or an afterlife. We are living the only life we'll have in the only world we know about. The responsibility for the choices we make is ours and ours alone.
