The Nashville Humanist
"Don't ever save anything for a special occasion. Being alive is the special occasion."
Because all we have is each other
Why are we here? What is our purpose in life? These are some of the most profound questions people have turmoiled with since the dawn of humankind. Oftentimes, religion has filled the gap to the “how” and “why” questions we ask ourselves. In a society where 7 in 10 people hold a worldview that is incompatible with the findings of science, I believe it is important to provide a community where open discussion and critical thinking is encouraged and applied to the world around us. Secular humanists do not subscribe to a theistic belief system and instead have built a philosophy that emphasizes the value and agency of human beings. Humanists prefer critical thinking and evidence over acceptance of dogma or superstition. I strive to promote Humanism, a secular state, and the equal treatment of everyone.
