According to the SelectSmart.com Belief System Selector, my #1 belief match is Secular Humanism. </br> What do you believe?</b></a> Visit SelectSmart.com/RELIGION


Secular Humanism

Belief in Deity: Not considered important. Most Humanists are atheists or agnostics.

Incarnations: Same as above.

Origins of universe/life: The scientific method is most respected as the means for revealing the mysteries of the origins of the universe and life.

After death: An afterlife or spiritual existence after death is not recognized.

Why evil? No concept of “evil.” Reasons for wrongdoing are explored through scientific methods, e.g. through study of sociology, psychology, criminology, etc.

Salvation: 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.

Undeserved suffering: No spiritual reasons, but rather a matter of human vulnerability to misfortune, illness, and victimization.

Contemporary Issues: 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 non-violence, and environmental protection.
