What is Humanism?

 “Humanism encourages us to answer life’s questions for ourselves, without necessarily taking onboard ready made answers passed on by others. It is about facing reality with curiosity and realism, and examining our questions with logic, science, humility, and empathy for all our fellow beings. It is a belief in our potential to find meaning in the one life we have, and to lead happy and satisfying lives in the knowledge that we are contributing to the greater – and fairer – good in this world.”

X’Inhu l-Umaniżmu?

 “L-Umaniżmu jħeġġiġna mwieġbu l-mistoqsijiet tal-ħajja għalina nfusna, mingħajr ma nirrikorru għal tweġibiet lesti li jgħaddilna ħaddieħor. L-idea hi li niffaċċjaw ir-realtà b’kurżità u realiżmu, u neżaminaw il-mistoqsijiet li jkollna permezz tal-loġika, x-xjenza, l-umiltà u l-empatija għal ta’ madwarna. Huwa twemmin fil-potenzjal tagħna li nsibu l-milja fil-ħajja, u li ngħixu ħajja ta’ kuntentizza u sodisfazzjon, bil-konvinzjoni li qed nikkontribwixxu għal dinja aktar ġusta u għall-ġid komuni.”
