When atheists talk about what they believe (instead of what they don’t believe), they frequently mention “Secular Humanism”. Secular humanism most closely parallels religion, in being a worldview that makes factual and value claims about the world.
So, what does being a secular humanist commit one to?
- What values and beliefs are distinctive of secular humanism? What justifies these values?
- How does secular humanism differ from a religion?
- Should politics be exclusively secular or is it unfair to exclude religion?
There are many other issues and questions that could be explored. For this Meetup, we would like to use the Open Space discussion technology to facilitate a broad discussion of some of these ideas.Resources:
There are two CBC Ideas programs on secularism that may still be available on-line — here’s the links (should open up a download dialogue):
