Lyk my humanisme is deesdae die nuwe buzz woord wat ateïsme op 'n baie subtiele manier moet vervang.
Die American Humanist Association het aan die einde van verlede jaar ook soos in London ‘n busveldtog in Washington DC geloods wat ten doel het om die konsep Love people not Gods te bevorder.
"Humanists have always understood that you don't need a god to be good," said Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association. "So that's the point we're making with this advertising campaign. Morality doesn't come from religion. It's a set of values embraced by individuals and society based on empathy, fairness, and experience.”
So seg 'n ondersteuner van dié gedagte: The word humanist is so much better then atheist. The Atheist is what it is not, a humanist is a person whom have easy to translate values. Values that stand on their own, not just in opposition to another claim. And the best part is that secular humanism just covers a few straight forward sentences - not a whole book in deep need of moral first aid.
Volgens sommiges kan humanisme ook as toegepaste ateïsme verstaan word.
