What, to you, is the essence of humanism? If you were asked to define it in the space provided by a Tumblr answer or a tweet, what would you say?
If you have religious family members, how do you feel about participating in holiday celebrations with them? Do you celebrate secularly, boycott, play along to make your relatives happy…?
Any and all genres; literal or figurative. Is there a song—lyrical or instrumental—that reminds you of your humanist or atheist beliefs?
