Well You are. Obviously you needed to get educated about your beliefs, that's the reason you're here. So learn well ~~grin~~
Obviously everyone is a humanist because they are human.[QUOTE who="boooots"]<qu oted text>
Trifecta1, I have stated many times that atheism is not a belief. It is not a religion. You are saying that atheists are Secular Humanists (which is a religion of sorts) and Evolution is a religion, which it is not. Evolution is a process that has been proved to have occurred, and is still occurring, by scientists who specialize(d) in the fields of science which study such things as biology, genetics, geology, etc.
An atheist may not follow any of those last named things. An atheist is just anyone, and everyone, who has no beliefs in any deity. They could, though, have thousands of beliefs, just not in a deity, and yes some atheists are likely evolutionists, and some are likely Humanists. Some could be Wiccans, or Pagans, but likely most are just ordinary human beings who live their lives and never give a whole lot of thought to anything other than what they know.
In fact my wife and I were married in an Unitarian Humanist church, though both of us are former members of the same Christian denomination. I had never been to an Unitarian church prior to meeting my wife, and actually I had little, if any, knowledge of them. Some of the people attending that Unitarian church are actually believing Christians and Jews, and some are atheists, but they go because they believe in the goals of the secular humanist groups such as Unitarians.
Actually regardless of whether a human is a believer in a deity or not, if a human being is not a humanist than what really is his purpose in being part of the human community of the world? If we are not concerned about humanity then what do we contribute to the world, other than just one more mouth that the Earth has to feed?
A Secular Humanist, is a Philosophy, and a Religion. A Secular Humanist can be a Christian, but they can't be no Jesus Follower.
This is what your religion believes:
An afterlife or spiritual existence after death is not recognized.
Check out some more beliefs here:
So writer that church you went to where Christians and Secular Humanist holding hands, is just two philosophies you was around. Because a Secular Humanist cannot be a Christian in the religious context.
You must understand some people are Christians in the Philosophical sense. Some People are Christians in the Religious Sense. And some people are Christians in the sense of Following Jesus Christ. And some people, are the >>Trifecta<< and all three.:)
