Humanism, Transhumanism, and Speculative Posthumanism
Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies
Like many who debate the ethics of transhumanism, I'm sometimes confused by the terminology that is thrown around by the participants. In particular, I find myself confused by the distinction between terms like humanism, transhumanism and post humanism.

Humanism

Humanist Ideals organized as a legit church?

About a year ago, I started a subreddit /r/ModernHellenism mostly as a joke. I also created a website www.modernhellenism.org. The more I thought about it, the more I kinda want this to be a real thing. Of course a literal belief in the greek gods is not really the goal, but "worshiping" the ideals the gods represent. Like praise Eleos and Aphrodite and condemn Aries and Erebus.

I guess the goal is to give people who are not religious the advantages that organized religions offer. Things like community, a place for discussion, and the many tax advantages of religions (not to mention the recent trend towards religious exemption from certain laws).

Is this something that has potential? I assume people have tried similar endeavors with varying success. Is something like this even worth the hassle?
