Despite its protests, Religion is entirely humanistic. That is the reason for the thousands of sects and constant changing of rules. People won't be told what to do by the church. That's why the christers don't kill adulturers or excommunicate divorcees among all the other humanistic, relativistic modifications to god's rules.

Ah, the Swiss, the nice Germans... chocolate, clocks, and post-impressionist art and gold (the last two items seemingly donated by the Jews in the 30's and 40's...)

Well now (another deep subject.)

It appears there are humanists,

Humanism is a philosophical and ethical stance that emphasizes the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers critical thinking and evidence (rationalism, empiricism) over established doctrine or faith (fideism). The meaning of the term humanism has fluctuated, according to the successive intellectual movements which have identified with it.[1] Generally, however, humanism refers to a perspective that affirms some notion of a "human nature" (sometimes contrasted with antihumanism).

In modern times, humanist movements are typically aligned with secularism and with non-theistic religions.[2]

and non-humanists,
