RE: Do you consider yourself a secular humanist?
I'm a member of the British Humanist Society. I don't consider myself to be totally in line with their 'manifesto'/worldview, but it's close enough for now. I support a lot of their campaigns, especially those to do with education (I have a child in primary school).

RE: Do you consider yourself a secular humanist?
I wonder how self-described secular humanists would respond to the various atheist critiques of it that can be found online. See a few below:

Why I Am Not A Humanist
'Problems with the humanist brand' and why I'm not one
Why I Am Not a Humanist

"Examine the religious principles, which have, in fact, prevailed in the world. You will scarcely be persuaded, that they are any thing but sick men's dreams." - David Hume

@Loki
Really interesting reads. Thanks. The last one has a link to a Stephen Law blog (in the comments) which is pretty valid.

I'm apparently 96% humanist.

Do you consider yourself a secular humanist?
I got a 90%, but the questions also seemed geared that way.

Yeah that's what I thought. Seems a little off.

RE: Do you consider yourself a secular humanist?
the polling questions do seem a bit off. they assume that either you are a humanist or a theist or a sociopath.

Exactly. They should've gone with a rating scale and given more than just those few ideals.
