In 2010 an organization called the American Humanist Association began an ad campaign to “help many people realize that they are already humanists.” The campaign theme implies that humanists “think” and that those who accept divine revelation do not. The organization states that, “Humanism is the idea that you can be good without a belief in God.”

A more definitive definition would be, “A doctrine, attitude, or way of life centered on human interests or values: a philosophy that asserts the dignity and worth of man and his capacity for self-realization through reason and that often rejects supernaturalism.”  Atheist (he says he is “agnostic”) Richard Dawkins published a book in recent years entitled The Magic of Reality: How We Know What’s Really True; his stated goal:  to arm the young, as well as the old, with the ability to think critically like a scientist.

The Bible says to the humanist, and to all, who believes that answers are found in man’s ability to think, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:” Romans 1:20 The process described here involves thinking, so the man who can think objectively will find God, and good, by an unbiased examination of the physical creation.

An atheist at a question and answer session at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington said, “Happiness is the basis for morality [good].” The Christian apologist conducting the event asked, “Happiness according to who, Mother Teresa or Hitler?”  You see, without God there is no basis for objective morals and “good”.  It’s just Mother Teresa’s opinion against Hitler’s. The Bible says, “And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.” Mark 10:18

“Think” about that.
