Introducing Humanism

Humanists UK have teamed up with Sandi Toksvig to launch a new massive open online course (MOOC) about humanism, called Introducing Humanism. Sign up for the course here.

What is Humanism?

Humanists are atheists and agnostics who make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared human values. We take responsibility for our actions and base our ethics on the goals of human welfare, happiness and fulfilment. We seek to make the best of the one life we have by creating meaning and purpose for ourselves, individually and together.

Is religion more than superstition?

Our latest Young Humanist Essay Competition was on the topic, Is religion more than superstition?. First prizes were awarded to Samantha Atkinson (under 15) and Corey Eastwood (15 - 19). You can read their winning entries here and here.
