As I have argued in Section 24.1of Chapter 24 and in Chapter 30, if we lay on nature its meaning and purpose, 18 then we can choose to interpret nature in the light of our own purposes, as long as such interpretation is not inconsistent with observation. Unfortunately, not everyone feels that way and this creates anger —> activism, which creates reactive responses from folks who have not experienced some of the same life tribulations of being atheist in a strongly theistic environment.

In Search of God and Self: Renaissance and Reformation Thought

Eupraxsophy is an amalgam of eu (good, well), praxis (conduct, practice), and sophia (scientific and philosophic wisdom). Brought together, eupraxsophy stands for �good wisdom and practice in conduct.� The word was initially spelled �eupraxophy,� but after some confusion about how the word should be pronounced, an �s� was added after the �x.� It is unlikely that this helped Ancient Wisdom, New Spirit: Investigations into the Nature of "Being" online. Revelation was the basis for sacred science but its source was supernatural. Experience gave knowledge of particulars which did not become true knowledge until reason had abstracted the essence of such particulars. Of the three important sources of knowledge accepted in common by all the orthodox schools (perception, inference, and verbal testimony), the Humanist accepted only perception as the valid source of knowledge and rejected both inference and verbal testimony Practical Reasoning (Problems of philosophy). Therefore subjective things matter; things like: the language we use to describe and frame things, the categories we use, our perspectives on Nature and our place in it, simple outward movements and poses of reverence, how we feel about things, our speech and mannerism Fighting for Life : Contest, Sexuality, and Consciousness. For many of them humanism, so far from being a doctrine and discipline, was a revolt from all discipline, a wild rebound from the mediaeval extreme into an opposite excess. What predominates in the first part of the Renaissance is a movement of emancipation—emancipation of the senses, of the intellect, and in the northern countries of the conscience Altering Nature (Philosophy and Medicine). The arrest of Milagro Sala is a provocation to activists and the people of Argentina, a provocation that we must and want to resist without violence, as has been the case until now. We call for the immediate release of Milagro Sala and the opening of channels of dialogue between the government of Morales and Tupac Amaru, as well as for the continuity of neighborhood and grass root organisations that, through Workers Cooperatives, have brought, and will continue to bring welfare to the people Imagination in Kant's Critical Philosophy.

I think with the rise of Atheism in United States, many people will accept it just like they are now accepting that some people are Homosexuals online. A Humanist Manifesto was prepared in 1933, endorsed by 34 leading Humanists, and published in the 1933-MAY/JUN issue of The New Humanist (VI:3:1-5). 1 It was updated as the Humanist Manifesto II in 1973. 2 Some of the themes of the latter document are: They trace their roots to the rational philosophy first created in the West in ancient Greece Plato's Camera: How the Physical Brain Captures a Landscape of Abstract Universals. The purpose of all-rational human endeavor, individual as well as collective, is attainment of freedom in ever-increasing measure. The amount of freedom available to the individuals is the measure of social progress. Roy refers back the quest for freedom to human being's struggle for existence, and he regards search for truth as a corollary to this quest. Reason, according to Roy, is a biological property, and it is not opposed to human will Fact and Value in Emotion (Consciousness & Emotion Book Series).

We each have our own personalities, while we combine to form the great universal human entity. What we crave most is appreciation from others.

There is also a practical component to "Jail-No-Bail." The Movement has little money and most southern Blacks are poor. It is hard to scrape up bail money, and sit-in struggles are faltering — not from lack of volunteers to risk arrest — but from lack of money to bail them out. Moreover, paying fines provides the cops with financial resources that are then used to continue suppressing the freedom struggle A Rhapsody of Love and Spirituality. If the answer is “yes,” then, as Seidman puts it “humanism needs a re-boot.” It’s a great metaphor, for to reboot a computer is to return it to the condition it was in before things went haywire.
