You Can’t be a Humanist?

You Can’t be a Humanist? My core definition of humanism is that humans can solve human problems by human means. I am not saying other things can’t or shouldn’t be added to it but to me a definition of humanism must always contain something coherent to such a thinking or not contradict such as I have offered. Thus, why it is appropriate to say, “good without god” when one is a humanist. I hear some say that they cannot be a humanist as they do not give equal value or worth to rapists or murderers. To me this is missing what humanism is about or referring to in worth and value. As it’s about seeing all people as worth or value because they are humans, regardless of race, class, gender, sexuality, ableness, size, etc. Those who point out not valuing rapists or murders are calling a person by the crime or ethical violation of behavior.

Are we fighting for equality?

Religion is not about truth

Religion is not about truth, it’s about indoctrinated faith. Do you really believe that even if clear documents demonstrate that Jesus had said he was not god, that they would stop all Belief, not hardly as it’s not about truth. Just like if clear documents proved Mohammed had said he was not really a profit of Allah but just made it up, that they would stop all Belief, not hardly. So again I say it’s all about indoctrinated faith not...
