Theology and Secular Humanism Bible Class Mrs. Colon 11 th grade
The Secular Humanist Theology Secular humanists are atheists The core of their belief is that there is no God and no supernatural realm to reality.
According to Corliss Lamont… The creation of the cosmos was not a divine act Rather it was human beings and their creative imaginations that invented the concept of the divine to explain the existence of the cosmos.
What a about God? A children’s book that states that God is mythical creature similar to dragons and fairies, certainly not someone whom human beings should look for guidance or salvation.
An Atheist that became accepted theism… Antony Flew At age 81, after decades of being a leading proponent for atheism, Flew felt compelled to conclude that some sort of intelligent cause must have been responsible for the birth of the universe. Science and reason drove Flew to this conclusion, not revelation or history. Theism does not represent mere faith in things unseen, but it is position that can be supported by both logic and evidence.
“Since there is no God, man must save himself.” –Paul Kurtz Man is the highest and most evolved being Humanity can figure out the best course of evolution We must create a system of morals independent from a universal standard Science and reason should be employed to solve the problems facing the world in which we live.
