Moscow, Idaho’s humanist group declares, “Humanism works!” with their new humanist billboard campaign

Humanists and atheists in Moscow, Idaho declare their presences again, with a new billboard and a new campaign called “Humanism Works”.  The new campaign began July 23 and will last for six weeks.

This campaign includes a series of ads, with this one as the first, which aims to educate the public about humanism and presenting the idea that one “can be good without God”.  The “Humanism Works” campaign also builds on past campaigns, such as “Darwin on the Palouse” two-day festival held in February.

This first billboard reads “Ethical values are derived from human need and interest as tested by experience.  Humanism Works!”

This billboard and future ones, planned by the Humanists of the Palouse, feature various principles concerning humanism, found in the Humanist Manifesto III.  Their website defines humanism as a naturalistic philosophy that rejects all supernaturalism and relies primarily upon reason, science, democracy, and human compassion.  Their mission is to advance their community through rational thought and expanding knowledge, which they plan with the “Humanism Works” campaign.

“Our billboard campaign aims to introduce the idea that ethics don’t have to come from an ancient text like the Bible or Koran,” said American Humanist Association Executive Director Roy Speckhardt. “Upon discovering humanism, we find many who say, ‘That’s what I’ve believed all along.’”

Speckhardt continued, “We are proud to be working with the Humanists of the Palouse again to bring more humanists and atheists in the area together.”

    I guess they have been awakened from their big sleep and now they gone wild. I can't say that I got to support them but maybe a protocol of the individual to fight for what is right.
