"The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness."
- Joseph Conrad

What Secular Humanists Believe
Belief in Deity
Not considered important. Most Humanists are atheists or agnostics.
Same as above.
Origin of Universe and Life
The scientific method is most respected as the means for revealing the mysteries of the origins of the universe and life.
An afterlife or spiritual existence after death is not recognized.
No concept of "evil" - Reasons for wrongdoing are explored through scientific methods, e.g. through study of sociology, psychology, criminology.
No concept of afterlife or spiritual liberation or salvation. Realizing ones personal potential and working for the betterment of humanity through ethical consciousness and social works are considered paramount, but from a naturalistic rather than supernatural standpoint.
No spiritual reasons but rather a matter of human vulnerability to misfortune, illness, and victimization.
The American Humanist Association endorses elective abortion. Other contemporary views include working for equality for homosexuals, gender equality, a secular approach to divorce and remarriage, working to end poverty, promoting peace and nonviolence, and environmental protection.

four flat tires!!
I've been doing triathlons since 2004 and that year I also did the Big Kahuna in Santa Cruz, 5:40hrs
I also love to cook, play computer games, and go to the movies. Reading is also up there. Oh and I also have screwed around with improv comedy. I'm often at Bang!
and perform every now and then. Are you laughing yet? No. Yeah, that's why I gave up the dream.
Always open to new friends, tech nerds, boardgame geeks...
