About Humanism

"Humanism is

  • a democratic and ethical life stance,

  • which affirms that human beings have the right and responsibility to give meaning and shape to their own lives.

  • It stands for the building of a more humane society through an ethic based on human and other natural values in the spirit of reason and free inquiry through human capabilities.

  • It is not theistic, and it does not accept supernatural views of reality."
