Humanist Values and Rhetoric:
We utilize free inquiry, the power of science, and the creative imagination for the furtherance of peace and in the service of compassion, often guided and inspired by virtues such as wisdom, love, and temperance, as explored in the science of positive psychology (https://www.authentichappiness.sas.upenn.edu/).

We are confident that we have the means to solve the problems that confront us all. Humanism is part of an effort to escape from all types of dogma and ignorance. We do this by spreading critical thinking and evidence-based thinking (rationalism & empiricism) instead of dogma or faith based thinking (fideism).

Do you have other friendly and open minded friends? Feel free to invite them to visit us!
