This group is for skeptics and secular humanists who want to discuss and promote a naturalistic worldview. We also welcome those who want to learn about our worldview.


Humanism is a philosophy, worldview, or life stance based on naturalism--the conviction that the universe or nature is all that exists or is real. Humanists seek to understand the universe by using science and its methods of critical inquiry--logical reasoning, empirical evidence, and skeptical evaluation of conjectures and conclusions--to obtain reliable knowledge. Humanists affirm that humans have the freedom to give meaning, value, and purpose to their lives by their own independent thought, free inquiry, and responsible, creative activity. Humanists stand for the building of a more humane, just, and compassionate society using an ethics based on human reason, experience, and reliable knowledge. --Steven Schafersman
