We stand at the cusp of a new way of thinking about and
understanding our world; one which is not bound to the traditions of prosaic
beliefs and archaic institutions. American Humanism is a consistent advocate
for a naturalistic approach to the problems of human life.
To find ourselves in the natural universe and more intimately,
in the lives of others of our kind, is to recognize the true source of our
individual humanity. From this source flows our ability and responsibility
to lead meaningful lives, capable of adding to the greater good and intrinsic
beauty of the humanity we share with all.
On a practical level, we aspire to fulfill the human
desire to know. We challenge the stifling
limitations of religiously restricted thinking. At almost every meeting
we examine issues of
ethics, science, philosophy, politics, history, art, or some other aspect
of human knowledge
and life that helps us become the articulate informed advocates for
the greater good of
humanity we desire to be. It is not just for Humanists to learn such
things, but for all fully
engaged citizens who want a better world for themselves, and all the
future citizens who
will inherit our world. And, having acquired this understanding, it
becomes our ethical
responsibility to actively create human well being. Being "good"
is not a passive condition.
This is your invitation to a better form of life than we
have had before. • J.P. © 2014
