According to secular humanists, human values should comprise the commitment to improve universal well-being. Ethical principles should be assessed by their effects on people, not by how well they conform to preconceived ideas of right and wrong.
Secular humanists reject that values and ethics are imposed from any deity. In that it echoes simple atheism. Secular humanism goes further challenging humans to develop their own values, and maintains that through a process of value inquiry, where reflective men and women can reach rough agreement concerning values such as integrity, trustworthiness, benevolence, and fairness; components of effective morality that are universally recognized.
These qualities are celebrated by almost every human association, not because god ordained them, but because human beings cannot thrive in communities where these values are ignored.
Secular humanists strive to offer a nonreligious guide that hopefully one day will conduct humanity in pursuing fulfilling and humane lives – lives that are rich intellectually, ethically, and emotionally, without reliance on religious faith.
