If you are one of at least 17 million 'atheists', 'agnostics', 'non-religious', 'freethinkers' etc in the UK who think that "right and wrong" can be determined by human nature without religious teachings you may be a Humanist? (BHA 24/11/06)

If the Humanist non-religious view on morals and other issues etc is to be taken seriously in society along with existing influential religious beliefs, it's important for Humanist groups to increase their membership substantially.

During recent times the government is increasingly encouraging religious communities to contribute on matters of policy etc, even though the majority of the UK are not practicing religion, which threatens the unique secular nature of British society.

You can help do something about it and get your voice heard by-

hu·man·ist, [hyoo-muh-nist or, often, yoo-] –noun
a person having a strong interest in or concern for human welfare, values, and dignity.

Some thought provoking questions we would lke to hear your views on...

At a time when the achievements of the enlightenment are questioned, ridiculed, misunderstood and traduced by those who would reverse the progress of mankind, it is essential to nail one’s colours to the mast as a humanist.

For me, that is not a turning away from mystery or a cold rational dispute with the numinous and spiritual in life, it is an acceptance of the awesome and splendid responsibility we each have for our own destinies, ethics and morals. I repudiate the authority of churches, revealed texts and vain unsubstantiated assertions and embrace the shared glories of humanity’s intellectual and spiritual struggle to understand the universe into which we are born with honesty, openness and faith in our own natures.

Stephen Fry

Richard Dawkins I arrived at my beliefs, as everybody should, by examining evidence... Something that has traditionally aroused religious feeling in people, the sense of wonder, is aroused in me by the contemplation of the world and the universe... I know I'm going to die eventually, and die forever. But before I do, I mean to use my brain to the greatest possible extent to understand why I was born....

Professor Richard Dawkins FRS FRSL, retired from Oxford University in 2008 and remains a writer and public figure.
