What is a Humanist?

A Humanist believes in "Humanism," a philosophy free from beliefs in the supernatural and dedicated to the search for meaning and values for individuals on this earth through reliance on reason, intelligence, scientific method, democratic process, and social compassion.

Humanism affirms the inherent dignity and worth of every human being and asserts that we are responsible for the realization of our aspirations and have within ourselves the power of achieving them.

Humanism contends that human beings are a part of nature, that we have emerged as a result of an evolutionary process, and that our values - religious, ethical, political, and social - have their sources in human experience and culture.
