We hold that all beings share an interest in their own happiness, and that compassion for others is often instrumental in attaining happiness. We also hold that the creation of systems that institutionalize compassion is the key to creating a society that is maximally free and fair to all beings. While we reject the idea that there is any utopian cure for our world's ills, we believe that better solutions to complex problems can be found by using science and research in an effort to understand causes and consequences. [more]<br /> <br /> We also recognize that for most people, including ourselves, conflicts between compassion and self-interest exist, and that living ethically can be difficult. As a partial remedy, we join together as members of a supportive community to pursue not only the happiness of others, but also our own.<br /> <br /> While Beingism's most fundamental premises as described above are unlikely to change, our philosophy is organic, evolving as its adherents and debaters discuss it. We welcome new ideas, just as we welcome new members to our community. Join us for discussion and debate, activism and aid. channel-four-news-creationism-in-uk tag:www.thinkatheist.com,2008-07-17:1982180:Video:161 2008-07-17T16:40:14.631Z Morgan Matthew http://www.thinkatheist.com/profile/morgan <a href="http://www.thinkatheist.com/video/what-is-beingism"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com/files/eoUjJCIf9rd3looWz4dWq9ylFfDzuvDxz5OY7J4I*JVZqQjKGWBxnoR1WG87mSBSP5UfezZFhPPE-Tufp2uSoWC0Aye-rvrk/263395246.bin?width=120&amp;height=90" width="120" height="90" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a> <a href="http://www.thinkatheist.com/video/what-is-beingism"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com/files/eoUjJCIf9rd3looWz4dWq9ylFfDzuvDxz5OY7J4I*JVZqQjKGWBxnoR1WG87mSBSP5UfezZFhPPE-Tufp2uSoWC0Aye-rvrk/263395246.bin?width=120&amp;height=90" width="120" height="90" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a>
