Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island Ethical Humanism is a deeply held set of core values dedicated to the ideals of global justice, mutual respect and compassion. As humanists, we place our trust in the innate goodness of people. Ethical actions and ethical relationships are at the heart of all that we do. Our connection to the universe occurs through our connections to other people, nature, and the arts. We support the use of science to reveal mysteries of the natural world. We focus on this world, the here and now, and are not overly concerned about what happens after we die. We believe that what we do and how we act in this life is our most important priority.
The movie group meets on the last Saturday of each month at noon. See the movies on your own, and come for a riveting discussion of character, plot, and ethical dilemmas. Contact the office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be put on the email list for the movies to be discussed.

American Humanist Association (AHA) The mission of the American Humanist Association is to be a clear, democratic voice for Humanism in the United States, to increase public awareness and acceptance of Humanism, to establish, protect and promote the position of Humanists in our society, and to develop and advance Humanist thought and action.
Humanism is a broad category of ethical philosophies
that affirm the dignity and worth of all people, based
on the ability to determine right and wrong by appealing
to universal human qualities, particularly rationality.
It is a component of a variety of more specific
philosophical systems and is incorporated into several
religious schools of thought. Humanism can be considered
the process by which truth and morality is sought
through human investigation. In focusing on the capacity
for self-determination, humanism rejects the validity of
transcendental justifications, such as a dependence on
belief without reason, the supernatural, or texts of
allegedly divine origin. Humanists endorse universal
morality based on the commonality of the human
condition, suggesting that solutions to human social and
cultural problems cannot be parochial.
Humanism clearly rejects
deference to supernatural beliefs in resolving human
affairs but not necessarily the beliefs themselves;
indeed some strains of Humanism are compatible with some
religions. It is generally compatible with atheism and
agnosticism but doesn't require either of these. The
word "agnostic" (American) or "indifferentist" (British,
including OED) are sometimes applied to Humanism, on the
grounds that Humanism is an ethical process, not a dogma
about the existence or otherwise of gods; Humanists
simply have no need to be concerned with such questions.
Agnosticism or atheism on their own do not necessarily
entail Humanism; many different and sometimes
incompatible philosophies happen to be atheistic in
nature. There is no one ideology or set of behaviors to
which all atheists adhere, and not all are humanistic.
As Humanism encompasses intellectual currents running
through a wide variety of philosophical and religious
thought, several strains of Humanism allow it to
fulfill, supplement or supplant the role of religions,
and in particular, to be embraced as a complete life
stance. For more on this, see Humanism (life stance). In
a number of countries, for the purpose of laws that give
rights to "religions", the secular life stance has
become legally recognized as equivalent to a "religion"
for this purpose. In the United States, the Supreme
Court recognized that Humanism is equivalent to a
religion in the limited sense of authorizing Humanists
to conduct ceremonies commonly carried out by officers
of religious bodies. The relevant passage is in a
footnote to Torcaso v. Watkins (1961). It is often
alleged by fundamentalist critics of Humanism that the
Supreme Court "declared Humanism to be a religion,"
however the Court's statement, a mere footnote at most,
clearly does not in fact do so; it simply asserts an
equivalency of Humanists' right to act in ways usual to
a religion, such as ceremonial recognition of life's
landmarks. Renaissance humanism, and its emphasis on returning to
the sources, contributed to the Protestant reformation
by helping to gain what Protestants believe was a more
accurate translation of Biblical texts.
