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 every meeting we examine issues of ethics, science, philosophy, politics, history, art, or some other aspect of human knowledge and life that help 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.

What should we think about death?

A Better Life - A new Freethought Film

There is no God. Now what? If this is the only life we have, how does that affect how we live our lives, how we treat each other, and cope with death. Photographer and filmmaker Chris Johnson introduces us to some of the many voices from his book.

In this fascinating documentary — learn the stories behind the book in interviews with some of our greatest thinkers. Join Chris as he explores issues of joy & meaning and travels around the
globe meeting people from all walks of life and backgrounds who challenge the false stereotypes of atheists as immoral and evil. From Daniel Dennett and A.C. Grayling, to Julia Sweeney and Robert Llewellyn —learn the various ways many atheists have left religion to a better life filled with love, compassion, hope, and wonder!

See the film. Meet the director, Chris Johnson
