What is Secular Humanism?

The simplest answer to be given is that it is a secular philosophy of the world.  The Secular Humanist puts reason and facts before all else.   The Secular Humanist does not accept concepts as truth based on faith.  All truths must be put through the rigor of study and experimentation before they can be accepted.   A Secular Humanist rejects the world’s major religions precisely because there is no evidence for their support and the tenets/dogma must be taken on faith.  From Wikipedia Secular Humanism, “…embraces human reason, ethics, and justice while specifically rejecting religious dogma, supernaturalism, pseudoscience, or superstition, as the basis of morality and decision-making.”
