What is Humanism?


The word "humanism" has a number of meanings, depending on who you ask. In different contexts, the word may reference philosophy, literary pursuits, values connected to religion, or secular movements looking to stand in contrast to it.

When FBB talks about humanism, we mean a philosophy for living that implores us to lead fulfilling, ethical lives. Without necessarily believing in the supernatural, we seek to meet human needs and solve human problems, both individually and collectively. In short, humanism is a philosophy of right-here, right-now integrity. 

Humanists value:

  • Civil liberties and human rights
  • Global consciousness
  • Mindfulness of the natural world
  • Seeking new knowledge
  • Imagination
  • Scientific inquiry
  • Analytical thought, reason, and science
  • Radical compassion extending beyond the boundaries of geography, gender, sexuality, ability, belief, or race.

While many humanists eschew religious belief, we at FBB are less concerned with theological debate and more concerned with direct, compassionate action. We are a community that largely believes that no supernatural power will make the world a better place for us; we must do it ourselves. We invite anyone who shares this drive to join us.
