The belief that a cosmic Jewish zombie who was his own father can make you live forever in a land of clouds if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a woman made out of a rib and some clay was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magic tree… yeah… it makes perfect sense.
„It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.“ — Carl Sagan.
• Belief is a Delusion.
• Meaning is only in you, not the world.
• „Soul“ is just another four letter word that someone made up. Nobody can condemn your soul if it never existed in the first place.
• Anything claimed to be right „just because that’s the way it always was“ is totally wrong.
• Shame is an invention of those who want to control your mind.
• „Spirituality“ is a chemical cocktail created by your brain. AKA „euphoria.“
What is Humanism?
- It is a personal, secular philosophy, a way of living, based on ethics and reason.
- Humanists value free thought and free enquiry. The values of humanism have inspired scientists and artists for centuries.
- Humanists strive to be ethical in everything they do. All humans have value and worth, and should be treated with care and respect. This ethical morality comes from our own understanding of humanity, and not from outside authorities or traditions.
- Humanists are rational. Science and scientific method offer a valuable way of understanding, improving, and organizing the world completely free from superstition. We must only use science in positive, creative ways that benefit humankind.
- Humanism supports democracy and human rights for all. Humans should enjoy the greatest amount of freedom possible, free from interference or hindrance, without infringing on the freedoms of others.
- Humanists believe that this freedom compels us to act in a socially responsible way. We are responsible for each other, and the natural world.
- Humanism imposes no dogma. Humanism is an alternative to traditional religions. True knowledge comes from scientific observation and philosophical inquiry, not fixed, faith-based theology.
- Humanists value art and creative expression as transformative. All of the arts are able to lead to personal development and fulfillment.
- Everyone can benefit from Humanism. Its ethical tenements, based on reason and compassion, allowing personal freedom, can be a productive way to meet the many challenges of the modern world.
