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. © 2015
