The Humanist Group of Unitarian Universalists Hong Kong affirms and promotes Humanism. In addition to Humanists, our group is also open to Agnostics, Atheists, Brights, Freethinkers, Irreligionists, Naturalists, Nontheists, Rationalists, Secularists, Skeptics, or anyone who forms and revises a worldview based on experience, evidence, reason, and a naturalistic approach.
What is Humanism?
Humanism is a democratic and ethical life stance, which affirms that human beings have the right and responsibility to give meaning and shape to their own lives. It stands for the building of a more humane society through an ethic based on human and other natural values in the spirit of reason and free inquiry through human capabilities. It is not theistic, and it does not accept supernatural views of reality.
International Humanist and Ethical Union's (IHEU) Minimum Statement on Humanism
1 Our approach is rational, evidence-based, and naturalistic (we have not seen enough evidence that can compel us to accept the existence of the supernatural);
2 We are inclusive in the sense that we do not turn away others based on their personal belief or ideology, as long as they are willing to engage in a rational, logical and evidence-based dialogue for the pursuit of a better understanding;
3 We are open to change as long as there are valid arguments with supporting evidence provided.
