A Humanist Creed

I believe in the real world and in people.
I believe in beauty and in the beauty of truth.
I believe in separating myth from reality.
I believe that people can solve their problems by using imagination and common sense applied with courage and by following basic moral principles.
I want to make peace, democracy, and well-being in the world while respecting the freedom of people everywhere.
All my life I want to learn and develop, and to enrich the lives of other people.
I want to feel the joy of life.

-- Peter and Catherine Bishop
