What is Humanism?
Humanists reject superstitious beliefs.
Instead, we can make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared values.
We can make the best of life by creating meaning and purpose for ourselves, and choosing to take responsibility for our actions.
It is important to act morally towards others, not because of a divine imperative, but because people have inherent dignity.
We have only one life, it is our responsibility to make it a good life, and to live it well.
A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. - Albert Einstein
