Took this test a while ago but forgot to post the results here (d'oh!). I scored highest on Secular Humanism which is great because I consider myself a humanist.

I whole-heartedly agree. Humanism is a modern method of thinking, as it dismisses untested dogmas and ideologies, favouring evidence and common sense; a welcome contrast to the archaic religions that have been permeated the globe since the beginning of recorded history.

Do you realise that humanism as a philosophy was developed and pioneered by Thomas Aquinas? Secular humanism, your 'modern method of thinking', goes back to theories of social justice belonging to a thirteenth-century friar and a saint of the Roman Catholic Church.

Ironic, that.

As for 'common sense' coming as a contrast to 'untested dogma', that dichotomy only exists because people try to approach these things from a set of flawed axioms: the idea that anything ancient must be inferior and that the only evidence worth having is concrete and quantifiable. The second assumption is especially troubling, as for that to hold good we must first accept the presupposition tha...but hey, why am I contributing to this discussion?! I'm just a theist. A Christian at that. I'm not clever enough to talk to modern-minded folks who actually think for themselves. I'll just crawl back to my mud hut (if I can work out how to switch off my computer) and occupy myself with praying to the Vatican flag.

go humanism


Go mud huts.

I can guarantee that if somebody had written "Go Christianity" or "Go Judaism" it would have been interpreted as a sign of religious bigotry or intolerance. But intolerance is never intolerant when it comes from a self-defined liberal, is it?
