I am a 'humanist', but I wish they'd think of a better word for it, because humanists also care about animals, the planet etc.   The neatest summary of humanism is 'good without god', where good is to be understood in very conventional terms!

I do believe human activity is having a significant effect on the climate.  Humanists know it is down to humans to fix it because God isn't going to, no matter how hard people pray!

I would define a humanist as 'a nice person whodoesn't believe in god'.

The official definition is, "an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems."  Do you think this definition fits you?

Is humanist just a positive connotation for an atheist?

Why put 'just' in there?

However, you are right.  Atheism is often characterised negatively, ie as nihilistic or iconoclastic.  Atheists are often portrayed as immoral and selfish, having no desire other than to sin without conscience.  That caricature follows from religion claiming a monopoly on morality; that to be good one must love and fear god, the only alternative being to give way to bestial desires.  Religions teach that man is inherently evil and sinful.

That misrepresentation naturally upsets the majority of atheists who are compassionate human beings, who care about all the suffering in the world and 'do their bit' to reduce it.  Philosophers can debate if it makes sense for an atheist to care, but whether it makes sense or not most atheists do care and have very good morals.   You don't need an ethical theory to feel compassion!

O course there are evil atheists - Stalin for one!  But Stalin was not a humanist; he is the antithesis of a humanist.

I don't get it. I guess humanist marriages are the same as civil marriages. Is it right? Because otherwise it wouldn't make sense.

But the article says humanist marriages have been around for not so much time. It's necessary more time to draw better conclusions.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

WOA = the TRUTH..........ATHEIST is a human construct...a word used by mentally MOLESTED Church-Temple-Mosque
                                         Parasite VAMPIRES

All humans who understand that "GOD" is also a human fabricated construct...and is used as a scapegoat TOOL for Religious
Parasite Vampire mind and life molesters for the purpose of assimilation and slavery to a CULT PSYCHOPATH....

All things Middle East "GOD" hoaxes = JEW-JESUS-ALLAH inventions for power and control..are founded on using FEAR-
INTIMIDATION-VIOLENCE..and horrific brainwashing and hypnosis conditioning into slavery of CULT dogma..

The HUMANIST understands that the HUMAN LIFE FORM is truly EXTRAORDINARY and is capable of creating awesome
transformations of molecules and atoms for various applications...sadly the Parasite VAMPIRE molester mindset dominates
the power base of humanity through RELIGION-GOVERNMENT-BUSINESS psychopaths...

These PSYCHOPATHS use all manner of MIND MOLESTING TECHNIQUES to oppress humanity into obedience of truly
insane ideologies...like a GAME of THRONES...EARTH is nothing more than a play space for POWER and CONTROL
by these PSYCHOTIC VAMPIRES...everything is expendable..WHY ?  because these parasites themselves are expendable
they...like all humans are TEMPORARY...so total exploitation and decimation of the planet is meaningless...playing the game
is what matters...the more destruction created the more one gains a seat in immortality....and that matters more than preservation

The HUMANIST expands potential and the realms of possibility to explore without imposing limitations...the exceptions are when
activity will have an adverse effect...instead of a positive...once the negative impact is recognized...the humanist will terminate
or modify activity to achieve a positive outcome...the Parasite VAMPIRE will expand the NEGATIVE EFFECT for self gain...

"GOD"  in the Middle East construct is used as a TOOL for OPPRESSION-WAR-SLAVERY....it is the anti-humanist perspective

SOLUTION...rid humanity of the middle East "GOD" hoaxes = JEW-JESUS-ALLAH garbage....replace with a POWERLESS
"GOD" = Mythology for curiosity....until "GOD" is eliminated completely from the human psyche...

This will be the turning point when humans truly begin the ascension to amazing discoveries and ways to manifest a HEALTHY
GREEN WORLD EXISTENCE without the FEAR-INTIMIDATION-VIOLENCE model of the old OBSOLETE "GOD" hoax CULTS

HUMANIST = another word construct attached to the HUMAN LIFE FORM....of which no word can truly describe or be used
as THE IDENTITY QUALIFIER of a HUMAN LIFE FORM...that is the stuff of Comic Book imbeciles....

However the intent of a so called HUMANIST is justifiable as SENSIBLE because the HUMANIST is not concerned with
a CULT or GROUP identity in a way where others who do not accept the HUMANIST perspective are deliberately
OPPRESSED or EXTERMINATED....(unless of course the ideology of the disagreement is like that of Terrorist ISLAMIC
proportions)  the HUMANIST is NOT an OBEY or PERISH construct...however it is kind of towards ideologies and activities
that are deliberately DESTRUCTIVE for the sake of a few PSYCHOPATH MINDED Dictators-Business-Religious fanatics

Eventually HUMANS will abolish using idiotic labels to IDENTIFY themselves...a TITLE or LABEL will be recognized as
a TOOL to identify what the individual is facilitating in a PROJECT...it is not a permanent attachment that can possibly
describe the versatility of a HUMAN LIFE FORM....that is the mark of the old OBSOLETE psychopath for control mindset

Marriage is another human fabrication that does not exist in nature as a CONTRACTUALLY ENFORCED BOND...that intent
is a BUSINESS/GOVERNMENT hoax....eventually the model of MARRIAGE will be abolished..and humans will choose who
and how they EXIST with each other.without needing some idiotic approval of others to do so....

the advanced human existence will be without POVERTY and OPPRESSION...WAR and the obsession with power and control..
Humans are presently treated as sheep to be culled and oppressed into some form of servitude for others who do not engage
in trivial labor and dumbed down rote activities...= DRONE....those tasks will be relegated to marginalized Ai .....

What is being done in sci-fy films...series...activities will manifest as reality...it's a preview of what is to come...if humans are
to ascend to a higher consciousness without the need for FEAR-INTIMIDATION-VIOLENCE...then the Middle East Religious
constructs must be abolished...and many Government obsolete MODELS  also....

the new frontier will be a FUSION of Capitalism and Socialism = CAPSOLISM  where the basic necessities of comfortable
housing, food, health care, and education is completely FREE...and instantly accessible so that humanity can transition 
quickly into new frontier opportunities...massive wealth building will become irrelevant...quality of life and healthy will be
the priority...then expansion in the Solar system and beyond...EARTH will still be viable and healthy till the SUN begins its
red giant phase....or some cataclysmic event occurs beyond human ability to rectify

Atheism is neutral.  A religious heretic/infidel would be a negative conontation.

Most of the time the "CHRISTIAN" hypnotized parasite is on the defensive when he or she encounters 
a person that does not accept their views....these sheeple drones are conditioned to react as though
they have been insulted and shun the NON BELIEVER....99% TRUE

Proven by the Jehovah's Witness VAMPIRES who stand like zombies with their propaganda display
on street corners-subway-shopping centers +++....

Question their methods or beliefs and they turn into SHUN DRONES because they cannot HYPNOTIZE
open minded curious humans...they seek the mentally disturbed but work stable victims to exploit and
trap into their maze without an exit....certainly not for JESUS...but for the purpose of culling for the CULT
more sheeple drones to enslave as servants of the WATCHTOWER PSYCHOPATHS

same goes for other fake CHURCH CULT Organizations...Roman catholic...7th day....latter day ++ to many to list
all are twisted mind and life molesting CULT organizations...who suck the life energy from their sheeple slaves...

These Parasite VAMPIRES always VOMIT....ATHEIST....as the go to word for the antichrist- non believer-
and all others they deem agents from HELL....it is the stuff of demented Comic Book Horror ....truly idiotic

...all are CONDEMNED who do not accept the CHURCH as their "GOD"  Jesus is a pathetic scapegoat...
"in the name of JESUS" the parasite says...but in no way BELIEVES any of it...just loves the power...
the opportunity to play "GOD"   and condemn all who disagree with them...SAD...very SAD...

These people are among the living DEAD...waiting..praying..confessing..born sinners..regressing into an
abyss of anything but HELL...yet they are themselves HELL on EARTH !

I can recall at least one poster on DDO that seemed to get the wrong end of the stick.  I can't be bothered to find the post now.

So that will be one single poster, and we have to simply take your word for it.

Remind me again, how many usernames were you exposed to having on that other forum?
