About

SHSlogo-small125The Science and Humanity Society is a non-profit social organization that advocates scientific principles and rational skepticism as means toward a sustainable, progressive, and compassionate society.

We stand for:

  • Science literacy, awareness, and participation
  • Free inquiry and skepticism
  • Universal standards of justice, dignity, and quality of life
  • Liberty, equal opportunities, and self-determination
  • Environmental responsibility and sustainability of human co-existence

Likewise, we reject:

  • Bigotry, discrimination, persecution, or subjugation of persons based on race, religion, or personal lifestyle choices
  • Supernatural, pseudoscientific, or irrational portrayals of reality
  • Ignorance, censorship, and misinformation
  • Absolute authorites without merit, review, or democratic candidacy

The Science and Humanity Society is aligned with Humanism, and therefore adopts the minimum statement, as prescribed by Humanists International (formerly IHEU):

“Humanism is a democratic and ethical life stance, which affirms that human beings have the right and responsibility to give meaning and shape to their own lives. It stands for the building of a more humane society through an ethic based on human and other natural values in the spirit of reason and free inquiry through human capabilities. It is not theistic, and it does not accept supernatural views of reality.”

To further define Humanism, we support the Amsterdam Declaration 2002, as adopted by Humanists International and its member organizations worldwide.

In accordance with guidelines by Humanists International for a unified identity, members of the Society identify as Humanists, and advocate Humanism.
