Sunday Terminology: Secular Humanism


Secular Humanism: According to WebWord Dictionary, “it is the doctrine emphasizing a person’s capacity for self-realization through reason; rejects religion and the supernatural.” It is a secular philosophy in atheistic nature which embraces human reason over any religions or faith system. It disapproves distinctively any religious dogma, supernaturalism, pseudoscience or superstitions as the basis of morality and decision-making, since it posits human rationality as the highest value which is the source of value without any reference to concept of the supernatural.
