In my "I think it's interesting ..." series:
I think it's interesting that there's an atheist "sect" called "Secular Humanists." I generally love this philosophy, which embraces reason, man's interactivity with nature (while not claiming automatic superiority), and god-free ethics and morals. It rejects superstition and outlandish religious claims, and instead recommends religious tenets be examined on an individual level and not blindly followed by faith.
Meantime, all major monotheistic religions (Islam, Judaism, Christianity) are more "human-centered" than any Secular Humanist could ever be. These religions claim that an all-powerful creator whipped up this WHOLE UNIVERSE just for us, exceptional humanity! Instead of living as part of nature, we are to claim dominion over her. If that's not an incredibly arrogant, "humanist" perspective, then I'm one of those new monkey species they found the other day.
Just think it's a bit ironic, that.
