Humanism is a democratic and ethical life stance that 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 ethics based on human and other natural values in a spirit of reason and free inquiry through human capabilities. It is not theistic, and it does not accept supernatural views of reality. – IHEU Bylaw 1.2
So first things first. Who are you?
My name is 王章恺(wáng zhāng kǎi), but you can just call me Darren. I’m a 17-year young teenager in Malaysia (the country above Singapore). As you may have inferred from the blog title, I’m a humanist. A Secular Humanist, to be exact. Most of my free time is boring my family and friends with philosophical arguments and “intellectual” talk, reading non-fiction, writing blogs, losing my soul to 9gag, and scaring people away with even more philosophy. Guess that makes a nerd, eh?
What’s the blog about?
Humanistic Perspectives is a place I created to express my views and thoughts on everything, from the scientific discoveries, alternative medicine, to the abortion debate. I also hope that it will become a place where everyone can get together debate geeky stuff, so if you have anything on your mind, do talk about it in the Comments section!
