Secular humanism is a way of life. To work towards the betterment of humanity in anyway you can. From morality to pushing advancements in all branches of science.

How do you describe secular humanism?

soredemonao:

thedailyhumanist:

A question for all of my followers: When you identify your beliefs, how do you label secular humanism? Do you describe it as a philosophy, a school of thought, a lifestyle, a religion, a faith? Why do you use the terminology you do?

There are no wrong…

YOU’RE WELCOME! 

But I just did let you know.

It’s just humanism  … only with a capitol H.

Secular is an unnecessary distinction and rather trite as a result.

Humanism is what Humanism is. How I describe it, or how Vonnegut referenced it doesn’t really matter. It is what it is. I think the only person it really mattered to was George Holyoake? And we know what he thought of it because he coined the term and according to him it’s not really “secular humanism” It’s owenism which is basically socialism.

Non Sequitur… 

Aha! Thank you very much for the clarification. :3 I appreciate it greatly, non sequiturs included. Non sequiturs are always welcome on this blog, as are helpful followers. :)

[edit: re-replied, as I initially posted the reply to my personal blog. whoops!]

There are no wrong answers, and will be no judgment. I’m curious!
