Humanism and the fear of Gd - Intermountain Jewish News

Humanism and the fear of Gd
Intermountain Jewish News
G-d-consciousness does not exclude humanism, and humanism need not exclude G-d. And so, if we ask, is G-d inside us or outside us, the answer has to be both. The oddest place to look for this answer, or at least I would think, is in a Biblical passage ...

On the importance of humans

"There will be no humans elsewhere. Only here. Only on this small planet. We are a rare as well as an endangered species. Every one of us, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another." - Carl Sagan

Please consider sharing your experiences as a Humanist. :)

Hi, my name is Mike. I'm working on a project to learn about people's individual experiences with religion and belief. In particular, I'm really interested in hearing (1) about people's beliefs and outlook on life, and (2) the positive and negative experiences that people have with religion.

I was wondering if any Humanists would be willing to share their story.

As part of the project, I'm working to publicly display stories at: www.sharingreligion.com ?

Ideally, I would love for you to share your stories here and on the website.

Please take a look and consider sharing! Thank you for your time.
