Secular Humanist Principles

These are secular humanist values we like to highlight. It’s what sets us apart from humanitarians in general.

Scientific: Science is the measure of all things.

Naturalistic: The only reality is the natural or physical world.

Ethical: All have an equal right to freedom and well-being consistent with the rights of others.

Positive: We can solve problems by combining critical thinking, compassion, and empathy for others.

Secular: We keep an open mind, worship nothing, and question everything.

Universal: Common needs and interest transcend nationality, ethnic origins, or beliefs.

Communal: We need communities to celebrate our connection with one another.

Ecological: Humans evolved naturally as a part of the world which we need to preserve.

Democratic: Democratic ideals are justified by rational self-interest.
