Humanism vs. Naturalism

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jedi Wanderer May 17, 2012. 7 Replies

A few of us began discussing this as a tangent in the "out of the closet" forum. I thought it fitting that since it's gained so much attention that it should get it's own topic. I'll post the last…Continue

"Again, you seem to think that it is a choice between one or the other, between humanism or naturalism. I am saying no, we just need to define our humanism so that it includes the advancement of all life, not just human life to the exclusion of…"

"Granted, almost completely irrespective of what catastrophe strikes humanity, whether caused by us or not, there will likely be enough of us left over to begin again. The question, however, is not merely "at what cost to our quality of…"

"Of course one does not have to be a Humanist to do the things I mentioned. However, what is the probable method of solving problems if one holds a belief in a personal god. Any and all human beings can be loved, celebrate, exaltate, examine,…"

"You don't need to be a Humanist to do "observation, experimentation, exploration and rational analysis". Anyone can do that without placing any ism at the end of their title. The foundation of Humanism is that those behaviours be to…"

"I believe the National Day of Prayer is a bad thing because Americans are the only ones who can solve their mutiple social and environmental problems.  No supernatural entity is going to help us once it's too late. "

CA Atheists protest Day of Prayer

Lodi California news, the day after the National Day of Prayer on May 3rd. Local church groups gather at a Veteran's memorial between City and Carnegie hall to pray for the country, persecuted church, and to rally local Christians to get up in arms again gay-marriage and abortion. 2 local Christians stand outside the gathering, peacefully and quietly with billboards expressing the unconstitutional nature of the Day of Prayer and calling for a separation of church and state.The news article can…See More

"Great idea! Thanks! We had a wonderful string about atheist vs. theism, gnosticism vs. agnisticism and I learned a great deal from these distinctions. I look forward to further opinions about Humanism vs. Naturalism. Humanism appeals to me…"

"I agree with Stephen. TNT666 seems to be picking on one phrase Stephen used, and seems to miss the point. Now that humanity has far surpassed the .5 billion mark, survival of the species is becoming more and more a primary concern, since…"

Humanism vs. Naturalism

A few of us began discussing this as a tangent in the "out of the closet" forum. I thought it fitting that since it's gained so much attention that it should get it's own topic. I'll post the last few comments and hopefully get the ball rolling. Some of tnt666's remarks about naturalism, humanism, and epistemology misses the mark for me. We are inescapably part of nature, whatever methodology hat we think we put on our brains. This is true for the guy I know who worries about pollution but…See More

"Interesting! TNT666, if I may ask, what is your epistemology? If perception is not it, than what do you base your knowledge off of?  Surely it can be observed (excuse the pun!) that one interpretation is more delusional than another. One sees…"
