The Humanist Society of Redding emphasizes
ethical and responsible behavior. Our group is committed to advocating
a naturalistic approach to our daily lives. We strive through our
programs and projects to make the world a better place, with justice
and equal rights for all.
affirm that the path to truth is free and rational inquiry with a
scientific approach, and that the problems of the world can be solved by
humans using logic and reason. We believe that
spirituality is a personal quality of being aware, connected, and
committed to a life of well-being for others as well as ourselves.
We also accept the scientific evidence that all
life emerged and developed to its present state through the process of
unguided evolution and recognize nature as the ultimate reality. We
affirm our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives and work for
the common good of humanity, rather than hoping for an unproven reward
after death or an existence beyond the one we are presently
experiencing. Therefore, we cherish this life and feel its greatest
fulfillment is derived from adhering to the highest of human ideals.
We concern ourselves with working for world peace, justice, for the
environment, and for the good of all living creatures. We speak out
against bigotry, cruelty, and intolerance.
We offer educational Humanist programs to members, children, and the
public at large.
