2. How do I know if I am a Humanist?

You can take our fun quiz to find out if your views align with Humanist values.

3.    Is Humanism anti-religious?

Humanism is a positive belief system, we seek to promote our positive vision for a secular Scotland where all people are treated equally.

We do however campaign for many changes in society, such as the legal and social privileges that many religious organisations enjoy – sometimes people interpret this as negative, but it’s impossible to campaign for any change unless we highlight the flaws with current arrangements.
