'Minimum Statement on Humanism'
The International Humanist and Ethical Union (2014)
"Humanism is a democratic and ethical life stance that affirms that
human beings have the right and responsibility to give meaning and shape
to their own lives. Humanism stands for the building of a more humane
society through an ethics based on human and other natural values in a
spirit of reason and free inquiry through human capabilities. Humanism
is not theistic, and it does not accept supernatural views of reality."
