A number of religious humanists feel that secular humanism is too coldly logical and rejects the full emotional experience that makes humans human. They had many great conversations with believers and non-believers and made plans to collaborate with other campus groups. Cultural critic, Os Guinness explains that the word humanist during the renaissance initially only defined a concern for humanity, and many early humanists saw no dichotomy between this and their Christian faith.

The reason is that the relationship of humanism to the Enlightenment has not been as much clarified by historians than that between humanism and the Renaissance. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house. (Henri Poincaré – Science and Hypothesis) It is the method of forming a hypothesis, the simplest that will explain the known facts, then deriving from it consequences that you can test – if that is true, then so must this be; and then by enquiry or experiment testing your hypothesis, possibly to destruction.

Jason Lisle (Paperback & Kindle at Answers in Genesis) "I believe this is one of the most important creationist books available today to teach people how to think biblically and how to argue logically in the defense of the Christian faith." - Ken Ham.

Also, I see humanism as being completely compatible with atheism, but is not compatible with “true” Christianity. The truth is the Puritan Hard Drive is not just 25 years of tedious work and the answer to many prayers, but it is a MIRACLE from our HOLY SOVEREIGN MAJESTIC GOD! He stole the fire of the gods and brought it down to earth. Nonetheless, a dress code has indirectly been created by the prohibition against wearing garments containing a mixture of wool and flax (Deut. 22:11) and the injunction against men wearing women’s clothing and women dressing like men (Deut. 22:5).

Fast transformations wipe away the social landscape in which the preceding generations grew up, creating abysses of incomprehension and insecurity. His Latin writings were most highly prized by his contemporaries, who ranked his "Africa" with the "Æneid" of Virgil, but posterity prefers his sweet, melodious sonnets and canzoni. Unpopular ideas can be silenced, and inconvenient facts kept dark, without any need for any official ban.” He did not explore the reasons in any depth, merely noting the control of the press by “wealthy men who have every motive to be dishonest on certain important topics,” reinforced by the “general tacit agreement,” instilled by a good education, “that `it wouldn’t do’ to mention that particular fact.” As a result, “Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness.” As if to illustrate his words, the preface remained unpublished for 30 years.

Not rarely will he suffer from neurosis that results from the situation of a sane man living in an insane society, rather than that of the more conventional neurosis of a sick man trying to adapt himself to a sick society.

Humanism does not imply–in any way whatsoever–that the rights of women are any less deserving than anyone else’s. But whatever it is, your movement is dying and I say good riddance. The Society of Friends (Quakers) was one of the first religious groups to speak out against slavery.
