Of all the labels I embrace at this point in my life, Humanist tops them all. I have often said that while I accept the “atheist” label, it doesn’t tell you enough about me because it only answers one question: Do I believe in any gods? The answer is “No,” but that only tells you about what I don’t believe.
Humanism tells you more about what I do believe. While I believe that humanity is far from perfect, I also suspect that our greatest chances for surviving and thriving reside with us as a species. I think we do a disservice to ourselves when we look outside our own humanity for deliverance from our problems, and I believe the responsibility for working to solve them rests on our collective shoulders. That makes me a humanist.
