What percentage of Think Atheist members are Humanists?

I've created a survey with the SurveyMonkey tool. I am curious to understand the link between atheists, agnostics and humanists. Only one question for people to answer, and it's anonymous.

 

Thank you

i just voted today,hope i make the cut lol

In my eyes atheism and humanism go hand in hand. Atheists don't believe in God, Humanists ignore the idea of God completely. Atheists believe we can have morals without religion, ditto Humanists. I would consider myself both, but more atheist because of the science aspect. I don't think Humanists care about science or where we came from. I did vote yes, because I'm more humanist than not.

This is all new to me butt... by this definition: 1. A system of thought that rejects religious beliefs and centers on humans and their values, capacities, and worth.

 

A definite "yes".

 

And thanks for an interesting question.  (Got to change my emoticon)

My little survey has lasted long enough. The result is clear. 85% of T|A members who responded consider themselves Humanists. I find this quite depressing. I would think that people who claim to have an understanding of science would have a better level of realisation of the endless harms Homo sapiens has caused this planet through our anthropocentricism. IMO, Humanism offers absolutely nothing new to run this civilisation better than Christianity has. Humanism is but godless Christianity and is therefore in my eyes useless.

I am closing the survey and this discussion. Thank you for participating.
