Humanist Manifesto is the title of three manifestos laying out a Humanist worldview. They were promulgated in (1933), (1973), and (2003). Humanism affirms the ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfilment that aspire to the greater good of humanity. This is the sense of ‘feel goodism’ in life devoid of afterlife.

The newest humanist manifesto is summarized under the following themes:

•             Knowledge of the world is derived by observation, experimentation, and rational analysis.

•             Humans are an integral part of nature, the result of evolutionary change, an unguided process.

•             Ethical values are derived from human need and interest as tested by experience.

•             Life’s fulfilment emerges from individual participation in the service of humane ideals.

•             Humans are social by nature and find meaning in relationships.

•             Working to benefit society maximizes individual happiness.

These themes seek to dethrone God and enthrone humans. In other words, they affirm that humans can live joyous and fulfilling lives without the help of God or any deity. They claim humankind can reach the highest pinnacle of knowledge through observation, experiment and rational analysis. They eschew punishment claiming that through evolution a criminal can evolve into a better person.

Again, they believe in helping one another to maximize happiness especially through relationships. They consider every moment of life such as outdooring, weddings and funerals as celebrations. They are major sponsors of LGBTQI+ activities to allow everybody to express his feelings unhindered.

Dearly beloved, as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. The Bible says the earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness of it; the world, and those who dwell in it. (Ps. 24:1 NKJV) therefore anyone who does not consider God in his thoughts will produce only hollow philosophies. All these ideas shall soon perish in hell fire with their adherents. Do not be part of them.
