##What Is Humanism?

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. Because humanism is not based on any theological premise, every individual is free to combine humanism with other belief systems and to resolve conflicting beliefs in their own way.
