The Humanist Association of San Diego

Humanism in San Diego Since 1970

Welcome to the Meetup page for the Humanist Association of San Diego. "Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of Humanity" (Humanist Manifesto III).


The Humanist Association has been meeting since 1970 to foster Humanist community, advocate civil rights and the humanist philosophy, promote critical thought and science education, and to work to become better people in the process.

Each month we get together to discuss current events, hold workshops on ethics, investigate the history of humanism and freethought, offer a monthly lecture and speaker series, perform service in our community, and go for hikes and enjoy other outdoor activities. We also put on plays, host traveling lecturers, and put on a regular regional conference.

Lastly, who are Humanists? We are people of good will pursuing being citizens in the human race to the utmost of our abilities. We celebrate the human potential to do such good, the capacity of the human mind to create great works of art and thought. We cherish the efficacy in cooperation to make this world a better place in the here and now with an eye on the future.

Not all Humanists are Atheists, and not all Atheists are Humanists, though a lot of us are in both camps. At its core, Humanists find the God question irrelevant in terms of morality and ethics. Humanism is more than an ontological statement, but a progressive philosophy that strives to make this one life a wonderful and fulfilling event for all whom live it.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
