Joshua’s interpretation of humanism is that it is a non-theistic philosophy that promotes respect for humanity and science. As humanists, we don’t claim to know what we don’t or cannot know but are constantly searching for answers using our ability to reason, think, experiment, feel, interpret and discern based on objective, evidence-based, controlled scientific investigation. We celebrate the life we know we have by living each day and each moment to its fullest and our fullest potential. We treat others with kindness and respect at all times and value the Earth as a precious and delicate treasure. Happiness is achieved through celebrating humanity, life and, most importantly, by giving of ourselves to support others and our world. The best way to get an overview of humanist thought is to read the current iteration of the Humanist Manifesto.
