Humanism and the fear of Gd - Intermountain Jewish News

Humanism and the fear of Gd
Intermountain Jewish News
G-d-consciousness does not exclude humanism, and humanism need not exclude G-d. And so, if we ask, is G-d inside us or outside us, the answer has to be both. The oddest place to look for this answer, or at least I would think, is in a Biblical passage ...

Humanism

If all humans were the same race, would racism and humanism be equivalent?

Alternatively, what would happen to the concept of humanism if dolphins developed a civilization? Or more plausibly, what if machines became more intelligent and capable than humans?

Why Humanism isn't as popular as Atheism

1) Religion is on the assault all over the world. It is extremely cunning. The fight against religion is far from over. Atheism is about fighting back/pushing back and has thus become a priority.

2) Humanism is basically common sense. This label doesn't really identify any special set of beliefs - nearly anyone could call themselves a Humanist. Atheism is a strong rejection of religious beliefs. It is very specific and in contrast to many other groups out there.

3) Humanism is too nuanced. Some Humanists see religion as man-made mythology, some still hold to religious beliefs and just use a back door to stand in both the religious and non-religious worlds. It is failing to be that contrast with the religious world that it should be because it is too soft and accepting of religious humanitarians.

4) Atheism is so much more fun lol. Less political correctness and a lot of 'tellin' it like it is'.

Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks : )
