- The Humanist Manifesto -
"Humanist Manifesto is a product of many minds. It was designed to represent a developing point of view, not a new creed. The individuals whose signatures appear would, had they been writing individual statements, have stated the propositions in differing terms. The importance of the document is that more than thirty men have come to general agreement on matters of final concern and that these men are undoubtedly representative of a large number who are forging a new philosophy out of the materials of the modern world."
-- Raymond B. Bragg (1933)
The time has come for widespread recognition of the radical changes in religious beliefs throughout the modern world. The time is past for mere revision of traditional attitudes. Science and economic change have disrupted the old beliefs. Religions the world over are under the necessity of coming to terms with new conditions created by a vastly increased knowledge and experience. In every field of human activity, the vital movement is now in the direction of a candid and explicit humanism. In order that religious humanism may be better understood we, the undersigned, desire to make certain affirmations which we believe the facts of our contemporary life demonstrate.
There is great danger of a final, and we believe fatal, identification of the word religion with doctrines and methods which have lost their significance and which are powerless to solve the problem of human living in the Twentieth Century. Religions have always been means for realizing the highest values of life. Their end has been accomplished through the interpretation of the total environing situation (theology or world view), the sense of values resulting there from (goal or ideal), and the technique (cult), established for realizing the satisfactory life. A change in any of these factors results in alteration of the outward forms of religion. This fact explains the changefulness of religions through the centuries. But through all changes religion itself remains constant in its quest for abiding values, an inseparable feature of human life.
Today man's larger understanding of the universe, his scientific achievements, and deeper appreciation of brotherhood, have created a situation which requires a new statement of the means and purposes of religion. Such a vital, fearless, and frank religion capable of furnishing adequate social goals and personal satisfactions may appear to many people as a complete break with the past. While this age does owe a vast debt to the traditional religions, it is none the less obvious that any religion that can hope to be a synthesizing and dynamic force for today must be shaped for the needs of this age. To establish such a religion is a major necessity of the present. It is a responsibility which rests upon this generation. We therefore affirm the following:
This Sites Remarks And Explanations Are In YELLOW!
So here we have a bold and revealing affirmation, that Humanism is a "religion", which it is really a "Pseudo Religion" (meaning, a form of religion, but does not abide by or follow or base on the concepts of "religion") It was when Secular Humanism was introduced to the courts, that it became a legal and recognized religion. This was the big mistake, and the tragedy that set the scene for tearing apart the 1st amendment of the Constitution of United States. Being that Secular Humanism denies the deity of God, it has declared simply, that it (Secular Humanism) has outgrown Christianity, Judaism, and other forms of so called deity (anti or pseudo-God) based religions. With this declaration within their own "Humanist Manifesto", and with the aide of Secular Humanism being recognized as a legal "religion", this has helped open a door to the courts, as well as to atheists and other anti-God organizations to attack and change the lst amendment. In doing this there has been a successful attack against the lst amendment of the U.S.. Secular Humanism has given birth to a powerful movement here in the U.S., as well as it has spread over the world, and that has helped in the establishing of a three or more decade old statement, "Separation Of Church And State". This illegal statement has done more damage in the past thirty or more years to undermine the lst amendment of the U.S. It was here, over thirty years ago, when Secular Humanism became a legal organization and religion through the courts, (which actually is not a religion), that they had begun a war on the lst amendment. And this has opened the door for anti-God organizations to challenge the courts on religious freedoms, religious rights, and religious interpretation in the U.S. Constitution. The lst amendment of the U.S., has become the center point for attack from Secular Humanists and anti-God organizations, well as from many special interest minority groups.
FIRST: Religious humanists regard the universe as self-existing and not created.
SECOND: Humanism believes that man is a part of nature and that he has emerged as a result of a continuous process.
THIRD: Holding an organic view of life, humanists find that the traditional dualism of mind and body must be rejected.
FOURTH: Humanism recognizes that man's religious culture and civilization, as clearly depicted by anthropology and history, are the product of a gradual development due to his interaction with his natural environment and with his social heritage. The individual born into a particular culture is largely molded by that culture.
FIFTH: Humanism asserts that the nature of the universe depicted by modern science makes unacceptable any supernatural or cosmic guarantees of human values. Obviously humanism does not deny the possibility of realities as yet undiscovered, but it does insist that the way to determine the existence and value of any and all realities is by means of intelligent inquiry and by the assess- meant of their relations to human needs. Religion must formulate its hopes and plans in the light of the scientific spirit and method.
In the above statement, and I quote, "Religion must formulate its hopes and plans in the light of the scientific spirit and method." This is an outright blasphemous lie and deception. Religion is not based on scientific methods. It never has, and never can be. Religion is based on belief and faith in God.
SIXTH: We are convinced that the time has passed for theism, deism, modernism, and the several varieties of "new thought".
SEVENTH: Religion consists of those actions, purposes, and experiences which are humanly significant. Nothing human is alien to the religious. It includes labor, art, science, philosophy, love, friendship, recreation -- all that is in its degree expressive of intelligently satisfying human living. The distinction between the sacred and the secular can no longer be maintained.
EIGHTH: Religious Humanism considers the complete realization of human personality to be the end of man's life and seeks its development and fulfillment in the here and now. This is the explanation of the humanist's social passion.
For those who do not believe that Secular Humanism is a religion, (if you want to call it that), through the Humanist Manifesto in the EIGHTH statement, they affirm their beliefs as "Religious Humanism". And base this so called religion on no religion? Does that make sense at all? No, absolutely not, and the founders of Secular Humanism continually attack religion and the belief in God (Deity). Although as strange and as deceptive that they sound, they are a strong force, that has greatly affected our religious freedoms in this nation for the bad! Secular Humanism is a Devil In Disguise!!
NINTH:In the place of the old attitudes involved in worship and prayer, the humanist finds his religious emotions expressed in a heightened sense of personal life and in a cooperative effort to promote social well-being.
TENTH: It follows that there will be no uniquely religious emotions and attitudes of the kind hitherto associated with belief in the supernatural.
ELEVENTH: Man will learn to face the crises of life in terms of his knowledge and of their naturalness and probability. Reasonable and manly attitudes will be fostered by education and supported by custom. We assume that humanism will take the path of social and mental hygiene and discourage sentimental and unreal hopes and wishful thinking.
The above affirmation, is more true and accurate then people can imagine. In the early 70's, Secular Humanism hit the Public Schools like a whirlwind after the courts ruled that Secular Humanism was a legal religion (in the early 1970's) the public school system really got into it, and began to establish new social idea's formed around Secular Humanism. With prayer being outlawed legally in 1962, as well as the courts making it legal to kill the unborn, this set a fertile ground for Secular Humanism to put their roots in the public school system of this nation. Essentially, God was kicked out of public schools, and Secular Humanism came in as a new modern alternative, and a poor and deceptive one. Youth were being taught that they did not have to accept the old main line religions in this country. They are now being taught new social ideas, and being introduced to new education curriculum, that leaves out the old main stay of religion that had been woven in to our public school system text books about our nations founding fathers and our nations founding principle's and so on, which have been based on the Christian/Judeo religion for over 200 years. But what was the worst is that the secular humanists knew all to well, by educating children from the youngest age possible in school, that as the children grew up and being brain washed by secular humanism and becoming adults that they would have been convinced. Also keep in mind, the Secular Humanists and teachings are void of morals. Secular Humanism teaches "values". Or to be more precise, "values clarification". This is one of the most dangerous and destructive terms that has ever been taught in the public elementary schools then on to high schools, and in colleges across this nation. With the onset of teaching values in the public school system, morals and religion (Christianity) quickly took a back seat, and thus began the decline of our nation in just about every area. So let's define the words "values" and "morals". Starting with the word "Morals". Morals is word meaning a set of absolutes. Such as "right" from "wrong". Our nation was founded upon God, the Christian/Judaeo God and religion, and upon moral absolutes. Moral absolutes that derived from God, the Judaeo and the Christian religion. And for hundreds of years the U.S. has lived under "morals". But with the cultural change that began in the 1960s, came the attack and questioning of the founding principles of our nation, as well as morals. This was the time when Secularism made it's early debut, and quickly took hold by the 1970s in many public schools in our nation. Secular Humanism the new form of teaching teachs that every one has values, and that everyone's values differs from one another. But on the other hand, morals does not differ for anyone. Here was the war between the two words, "values and morals". Values, you can believe in and do anything you want. Values are often anti-morals and anti God (Christian/Judeo God our nation was founded upon).
It is clear that throughout the Humanist Manifesto that the writers and designers of it make it very clear that religion (Christianity and Judaism or any other forms of religion) can no longer be tolerated, taught or forced on the people any longer, and must be done away with. And that the Secular Humanists profess their form of false religion "MUST" be taught and progressed! But this is called "religious intolerance", of forcing of ones religion on another! This is totally contrary to the 1st amendment of the U.S. that guarantee's freedom of religion, and also prohibits the government to get involved in any way, shape or form to expand or establish a religion, or prohibit it. But yet (and here is one of the utter lies of Secular Humanism, that in their own affirmations, they insist on demanding and pushing their beliefs and idea's in their so called religion (actually a Pseudo religion), that they are "assuming" that we are all just going embrace it, and push it onto everyone! Oh! How deceiving Secular Humanism is, and it is!
TWELFTH: Believing that religion must work increasingly for joy in living, religious humanists aim to foster the creative in man and to encourage achievements that add to the satisfactions of life.
THIRTEENTH: Religious humanism maintains that all associations and institutions exist for the fulfillment of human life. The intelligent evaluation, transformation, control, and direction of such associations and institutions with a view to the enhancement of human life is the purpose and program of humanism. Certainly religious institutions, their ritualistic forms, ecclesiastical methods, and communal activities must be reconstituted as rapidly as experience allows, in order to function effectively in the modern world.
Did you read that! The Secular Humanists are telling us we must be "reconstituted" as rapidly as possible in order to effectively function in the modern world. What they are really saying is that those who believe in God will have to be re-educated to accept the Humanists beliefs. Oh really! This just smacks of mind control as well as Communism/Socialism/Marxism/Lenonism. They say on one hand, or rather insinuate, they have little tolerance for those who believe in God, but then on the other hand, they also state that they tolerate those that believe in God? But as I said, they stated that through being "reconstituted", we will see the light! Pay close attention to those affirmations where the Humanists keep using the word "MUST". In other words, they are demanding that those of us who believe in God MUST change, and must accept their false beliefs and idea's.
FOURTEENTH: The humanists are firmly convinced that an existing acquisitive and profit-motivated society has shown itself to be inadequate and that a radical change in methods, controls, and motives must be instituted. A socialized and cooperative economic order must be established to the end that the equitable distribution of the means of life be possible. The goal of humanism is a free and universal society in which people voluntarily and intelligently cooperate for the common good. Humanists demand a shared life in a shared world. All Hail Marxist Communism!
In the 14th affirmation, they really and finally say what they have been trying to say throughout the past thirteen affirmations. And instead of beating around the bush, they come out and say that RADICAL METHODS, CONTROLS AND MOTIVES are needed, and must be instituted. Well, now we have an idea of "who they are" and "what they are", Communists, but in a different package, with a different front and approach, "simple to see and understand!" The Humanis Manfesto and their affirmations are really eye opening! And there is that word "reconstituted" again! They want to totally change our minds, or should I say this, "brain wash your minds!" And if they get their way, and by their own words, they will do it even if they have to use FORCE! I am not saying that the affirmation did just state that! Read it again. The wordings are very deceptive, and very well placed. But when you cut it away, and dissect it, the devil is exposed, and the lie is seen!
FIFTEENTH AND LAST: We assert that humanism will: (a) affirm life rather than deny it; (b) seek to elicit the possibilities of life, not flee from them; and (c) endeavor to establish the conditions of a satisfactory life for all, not merely for the few. By this positive morale and intention humanism will be guided, and from this perspective and alignment the techniques and efforts of humanism will flow.
So what are they really saying here? What I think they are saying is that they are trying to establish a "self" Utopia for themselves and mankind, and be God like! Meaning, that man is capable of being "God like", (in his own imagination and beliefs). The implications of their various affirmations and statements make clear that show that this is what they believe in for the welfare of mankind. Here is another way of explaining "their" beliefs, motiffs, etc.,. The Secular Humanists make it clear by their "own affirmations" and "ideas" that they have no room for "God" in their lives and for anyone elses lives! These Secular Humanist's make it clear they are "atheists", and they want something else other then God for thiers and mankind's lives. They also say that "they" have the ideas and method to offer mankind a new society and a new world FREE of a divine "God". Secular Humanism is another form of "Atheism". The words "Secular Humanism" are new words for "Pagan Teachings and Religions!" Secular Humanism appears to have strong ties with "Pagan Religions!" There have been many, many forms of Paganist religions over the past thousands of years, and still more Pagan and false relgions keep beginning!
The one God belief, (Monotheism) began with Adam and Eve, the "FIRST" human creations of Jehovah (God) on the Earth! Later, other religions were formed due to the disatisfaction, rebellion, sin, etc. of evolving "mankind!" Mankind has gone through these periods since the beginning of history of never being satisfied with Jehovah, and desiring to make up their own so called "gods" and "religions". Often and throughout thousands and thousands of years of mankind, man has placed Himself above Jehovah as a "Diety", which comes through rebellion against "Jehovah" GOD and denying GOD! Throughout history, mankind has continually made up inventions of his mind of seeking out new concepts and new ideas based on "HIMSELF" and his "IMAGINATION" as a potential "Diety" or creating a NEW "Diety" mindset.
AS the Bible says clearly, "There is nothing new under the sun", (meaning nothing knew with mankind and his continually wanting to either change believing in God, or his own and others concepts of what he things is God and or of himself being a God! In other words, mankind almost from the beginning has often placed Himself above God and even trying to become like God or what is called a (Psuedo God, meaning a false God). This is what I see here with the Humanist Manifesto. Men trying to be like God, and coming up with new ideas that really are not new! They are denying the creator by their own words in their affirmation of their "Humanist Manifesto" of what THEY think and beleive is an answer for mankind! But what these men were really doing, is rebelling against Jehovah, (God), and desiring themselves or setting themselves up to be a sort of God and for the rest of mankind to also be the same. "There is nothing new under the sun with mankind" and his disatisfaction with God, and rebelling against God! This is how and why so many false religions have been formed almost since the beginning of mankind.
Though we consider the religious forms and ideas of our fathers are no longer adequate, the quest for the good life is still the central task for mankind. Man is at last becoming aware that he alone is responsible for the realization of the world of his dreams, that he has within himself the power for its achievement. He must set intelligence and will to the task.
After reading through this Humanist Manifesto, I am convinced those who wrote it were very confused and very much in search of a reason and answers for man's life, other then looking to God for the truth and the REAL answers. God IS the real truth for mankind. However, those who wrote the "Humanist Manifesto 1., and 2., have totally missed God in their quest, or rather they have exiled God and purposely. It also seems fair to say that Secular Humanism is built on nonsense, theory, and leaving out "God" as the principle and positive equation in their, (the writers of the Manifesto #1 and #2) equation of searching for a "new" enlightment for man all man kind. Religion as man has known it throughout history has been and is based on the God diety. Secular Humanism is a mockery to man and God and our nation and the world. Secular Humanism has taken a "strangle hold" on this nation, and has polluted many of our nation's schools over the past several decades with their deceptive affirmations and false religious idea's and concepts. Why our courts ever accepted and "legally" recognized "Secular Humanism" as a religion in the early 1970s stills angers me greatly and always will. Secular Humanism made it's debut in the late 60s or early 70s, and started with educating America's children with the lie and deception.
Special Note: Do an Internet search on "Secular Humanism", and you will most likely find notes or writtings and even court writtings about "Secular Humanism" being legally passed as a "religion". For those who are not aware of this, I know you will be both surprised and shocked!
Continue on from the paragraph before the "Special Note!"
upon Secular Humanism as a real religion, makes absolutely no sense at all. But whether it makes no sense or not, this movement has been and is affecting our nation in a very bad way and for the past 40 to 50 years. But one thing is for sure, it is probable and more then likely that Secular Humanism, atheists, agnostics, and anti-God individuals and organizations have found a marvelous tool in which to try to defeat religious freedom and religious freedom of rights in this country. And that the monster of anti God and anti-Christianity is more on the loose in this nation then ever before in our history. The word of God in the Bible says that Satan comes as an angel of light! Satan is a master deceiver, liar and dectionist and will stop at nothing to defeat and condemn mankind and "God" as well.
SPECIAL NOTE BELOW!
Mankind is always learning, and never coming into the fullness of the truth and finding all the answers. This is the way it has been since the beginning of mankind, and always will be. Why? Man is not "finite!"
This nation was NOT founded on "Human Secularism", and was not founded on atheists, or founded on those extremist atheist organizations that are continually hammering away and attacking religious rights and freedoms in this nation. This country was founded under the Christian - Judaeo God and religion. It is time to turn the tide! It is time to challenge the courts and stop those who have and are undermining this nation. Secular Humanism is one of those dangerous lies that is undermining this nation. It is a lying devil! It is an old false religion of man, but with a new face, and with new words. This country was founded "one nation under God". Notice, the word God, was used in a singular manner, and not plural. Our Constitution and other important founding principles for this nation, was based onn the "Christian Judeao" God.
