What Do They Believe- Secular Humanists

Beginning:  Gen. 3: 5.  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Book of the Law 1904- “Do What Thou Wilt” Aleister Crowley- demonically channeled book.

Humanist Manifesto I- Copyright © 1933 by The New Humanist and 1973 by the American Humanist Association

5th statement- Humanist  Manifesto II: We reject all religious, ideological, or moral codes that denigrate the individual, suppress freedom, dull intellect, and dehumanize personality. We believe in maximum individual autonomy consonant with social responsibility. Although science can account for the causes of behavior, the possibilities of individual freedom of choice exist in human life and should be increased. (1973)    in other words  “Do What Thou Wilt”

View of Scripture:  8 of the original 30+ signers of the Humanist Manifesto were ministers of the Unitarian /Universalist religion, beginning as a “Christian sect” who rejected the deity of Jesus.  Universalists reject hell and damnation.  Very similar to Masonism, etc.

Science is exalted as final authority on matters of faith.  Put your faith in natural science.

2nd of 15, Humanist Manifesto I: Humanism believes that man is a part of nature and that he has emerged as a result of a continuous process.  (Darwinism is a central theme.)
Julian Huxley, for example, insists that "man ... his body, his mind and his soul were not supernaturally created but are all products of evolution." Sagan, Lamont, Sellars, Kurtz—all Secular Humanists are in agreement on this.
 The Strength and backbone of the Secular Humanists is Darwinism.  The signers of the separate manifestos are intended to shock and awe the reader into submission. You are to think, resistance is futile!  You are supposed to be cowed into submission.  But the signers aren't the best and brightest in the fields of science, which they supposedly worship.  To read a list of true top flight scientists who don't believe Darwinism is the panacea the Humanists want us to believe it is, go here:  You will be able to see their Ph.Ds, fields of specialty, posts held in their respective posts, and will be able to escape the  shock and awe component of the Humanist Manifesto signers.

View of God:  Theologically, Secular Humanists are atheists. Humanist Paul Kurtz, publisher of Prometheus Books and editor of Free Inquiry magazine, says that "Humanism cannot in any fair sense of the word apply to one who still believes in God as the source and creator of the universe."  Corliss Lamont agrees, saying that "Humanism contends that instead of the gods creating the cosmos, the cosmos, in the individualized form of human beings giving rein to their imagination, created the gods.”

View on Jesus: 
Universalist/Unitarians: A mortal man with a unique relationship with God.
Atheists: a mortal man, possibly a good man/teacher. Definitely NOT God or Son of God or deity apart from all men.

View on Salvation:  Unitarian Universalists believe all people are related to God and will go to heaven after death.  Atheists believe that after death you are just gone.

Sacraments:   From Humanist Manifest III: Life's fulfillment emerges from individual participation in the service of humane ideals. Working to benefit society maximizes individual happiness

Humanist Manifesto I
Humanist Manifesto I:  These are the creeds to this faith:

FIRST: Religious humanists regard the universe as self-existing and not created.
SECOND: Humanism believes that man is a part of nature and that he has emerged as a result of a continuous process.
THIRD: Holding an organic view of life, humanists find that the traditional dualism of mind and body must be rejected.
FOURTH: Humanism recognizes that man's religious culture and civilization, as clearly depicted by anthropology and history, is the product of a gradual development due to his interaction with his natural environment and with his social heritage. The individual born into a particular culture is largely molded by that culture.
FIFTH: Humanism asserts that the nature of the universe depicted by modern science makes unacceptable any supernatural or cosmic guarantees of human values. Obviously humanism does not deny the possibility of realities as yet undiscovered, but it does insist that the way to determine the existence and value of any and all realities is by means of intelligent inquiry and by the assessment of their relations to human needs. Religion must formulate its hopes and plans in the light of the scientific spirit and method.
SIXTH: We are convinced that the time has passed for theism, deism, modernism, and the several varieties of "new thought".
SEVENTH: Religion consists of those actions, purposes, and experiences which are humanly significant. Nothing human is alien to the religious. It includes labor, art, science, philosophy, love, friendship, and recreation--all that is in its degree expressive of intelligently satisfying human living. The distinction between the sacred and the secular can no longer be maintained.
EIGHTH: Religious Humanism considers the complete realization of human personality to be the end of man's life and seeks its development and fulfillment in the here and now. This is the explanation of the humanist's social passion.
NINTH: In the place of the old attitudes involved in worship and prayer the humanist finds his religious emotions expressed in a heightened sense of personal life and in a cooperative effort to promote social well-being.
TENTH: It follows that there will be no uniquely religious emotions and attitudes of the kind hitherto associated with belief in the supernatural.
ELEVENTH: Man will learn to face the crises of life in terms of his knowledge of their naturalness and probability. Reasonable and manly attitudes will be fostered by education and supported by custom. We assume that humanism will take the path of social and mental hygiene and discourage sentimental and unreal hopes and wishful thinking.
TWELFTH: Believing that religion must work increasingly for joy in living, religious humanists aim to foster the creative in man and to encourage achievements that add to the satisfactions of life.

THIRTEENTH: Religious humanism maintains that all associations and institutions exist for the fulfillment of human life. The intelligent evaluation, transformation, control, and direction of such associations and institutions with a view to the enhancement of human life is the purpose and program of humanism. Certainly religious institutions, their ritualistic forms, ecclesiastical methods, and communal activities must be reconstituted as rapidly as experience allows, in order to function effectively in the modern world.

FOURTEENTH: The humanists are firmly convinced that existing acquisitive and profit-motivated society has shown itself to be inadequate and that a radical change in methods, controls, and motives must be instituted. A socialized and cooperative economic order must be established to the end that the equitable distribution of the means of life be possible. The goal of humanism is a free and universal society in which people voluntarily and intelligently cooperate for the common good. Humanists demand a shared life in a shared world.

FIFTEENTH AND LAST: We assert that humanism will: (a) affirm life rather than deny it; (b) seek to elicit the possibilities of life, not flee from them; and (c) endeavor to establish the conditions of a satisfactory life for all, not merely for the few. By this positive morale and intention humanism will be guided, and from this perspective and alignment the techniques and efforts of humanism will flow.
