It is an interesting issue.
Bottom line is that the question is moot, because Humanistic Judaism and secular Judaism may be meaningful to the current "practitioners" but they have no method to transmit their systems to their children because implicit in their value system is an embrace of interfaith marriage. So they are doomed to extinction.
Why don't you think interfaith marriage partners can maintain the cultural aspects of one of the partners? If it's important enough to them, I'm sure they will transmit it to their children, no?

I'm going to nitpick on terminology a bit. Agnosticism and Atheism are mutually exclusive terms. One is either an agnostic atheist or a gnostic atheist (as opposed to an agnostic theist or a gnostic theist). All atheists I've ever known (including the well known "new" atheists such as Hitchen, Dawkins, Harrison, Dennett) are all agnostic atheists, since they acknowledge that you can't definitively disprove God. It is a common misconception (and common source of strawman arguments) that those who self-identify as atheist are gnostic atheist. That is not the case.

What I dont get about the Jewish atheists and the Jewish humanists is that if they would actually learn more about the other Jewish denominations, they would find currents of ideology that are probably compatible with their value system. Jews have been discussing and debating these issues for 1000s of years.
Reading the comments section of that article, it appears that many atheist/humanist Jews have done just that.

WHERE DOES INDIVIDUAL EFFORT IN THE YOGA END?

1) Individual effort ends with the cosmic overmental planes (9th to 12th planes). Ascent no longer works if one wishes to exceed the overmental planes.

2) If the yogi wishes to rise to the planes exceeding the cosmic overmental, then individual effort cannot help. So, how does he rise beyond the overmental planes into the planes exceeding the overmental which are the supramental planes and even beyond? In such a case, the typal being of the plane has to descend and unite in consciousness-energy with the being of the yogi and lift his consciousness-energy field into the plane that the typal being of that plane presides over.

GOD THE ALMIGHTY CREATOR OF THE COSMOS IS FICTION:

1) The ignorant believe that an almighty creator called God who has created the whole cosmos and who presides over it exists but laughably what these deluded believers call God or the Almighty Creator is simply a typal being of a certain cosmic plane that is the exclusive object of their worship.

2) Gods who're typal beings found on the various cosmic planes exist.

3) The absolute reality is a unified field of conscious-energy of which the cosmos, the Gods and cosmic phenomena are manifested aspects.

4) God as the Almighty Creator of the cosmos does not exist.

The unified field eternally oscillates between a state of equilibrium (unmanifest state) to a state of non-equilibrium (manifest state).

Provide very precise definitions backed with logical reasons and evidence and don't forget to explain the causal mechanisms.
Joel - Is God or G-d with his anthropopathic attributes and typal personality and possibly his incarnate form the ineffable unified absolute field of conscious-energy?

Hugh - God is not a field of conscious or unconscious energy.

Joel--If, as you say, God cannot be expressed in terms of consciousness- energy and matter that form a unified field, then, what is the typal nature of the God you worship?

Hugh--- In reading my words immediately above yours I see a disconnect between them and your understanding.

Joel---What is the basal composition or the typal nature of the spiritual side of existence?

HughBe--- Spirit

Joel---How does the spiritual side of existence causally connect with the cosmos that's a projection of the unified field of consciousness- energy and matter?

Hugh--- Unable to answer this question so you answer it , for me.

A subtle state of existence is one that exceeds the ken of senses, mind and lab instrumentation. The higher degrees of vibration that exceed those frequencies that inhere in 4-dimensional space-time defines such subtle states of cosmic existence.

Existence means the manifested state of the unified field, while non-existence would refer to the unmanifest state of the unified field. Non-existence does not mean a state of nothingness which most people take it to refer to. The word "nothing" is fictional.

JOEL THUMBS UP--The typal being that you worship as God would be labelled a demon by a person of another faith and so this kind of reasoning is futile and shallow.

Hugh--- noted.

Joel---By the way, on which supracosmic/cosmic plane are these typal beings (or the demons as you call them) located?

Hugh--- On earth and elsewhere.

Joel---What is the phenomena in action on that/those planes where these demons are found?

Hugh--- EVIL

Joel---On which plane is your God found? How do you know?

Hugh--- Highest plane. The bible tells me so.

Joel---What're the causal mechanisms on that plane and how would you describe the phenomena there?

Hugh--- God. Peace and love.

HUGH,

1) What is the typal nature of this spirit?

2) How do you know that this spirit exists?

3) How does spirit causally connect with the unified field of consciousness-energy?

<quoted text>
In theory yes. But in practicality I really doubt it. There is little transmission going on in dedicated interfaith couples right now (i.e. between committed Jews and Christians), so I wouldnt think secular Jewish humanists would fare any better. If anything, it would be worse. I see all of this as a step towards assimilation.

Well, if gnostic atheists are out of the picture, so to speak, then I would think Judaism is 100% compatible with the rest of the atheists. Especially the more traditional variants such as orthodoxy which stress behavior (mitzvot) over belief. But the point is that Jewish commentary and practice does not shy away from agnosticism or even questioning the basis for belief.

Will read those and get back to you. I see this reinventing of the wheel on an everday basis. I for the life of me dont see the difference really between Reconstructionist Judaism and Reform Judaism - both of them are out to selectively renew certain traditions and willfully reject or ignore others. They have the same aim. But yet they have emerged as separate institutions. ANd then there is the matter of nonduality - a threat to anthromorphic and anthropopathic theism, but still a part of the normative tradition if one is lucky enough to be exposed to it before rejecting organized religion on the basis of theism.

FREQUENCY OF VIBRATION DETERMINES STATE OF EXISTENCE:

1) Frequency of vibration typifies the various strata of cosmic existence that arise from the unified field of conscious-energy in its state of manifestation.

2) The cosmic bliss planes represent a specific frequency of vibration of the unified conscious-energy field, the supramental planes work at a particular lower frequency of vibration of the unified field of conscious-energy, mind is simply one particular still lower frequency of vibration of this manifested unified field of conscious-energy, life is another albeit a lower frequency of the vibration of the unified field of conscious-energy, matter is the lowest frequency of vibration of the unified field of conscious-energy.

3) Only the advanced yogis know all the frequencies of vibration of the various planes of existence and how one can be fused or hybridized with the other(s).
