Secular Humanism Is Evangelistic

David Noebel

Secular humanism is one of the major “evangelistic” worldviews vying for the hearts and minds of the world. It is a religious worldview (like all other worldviews) because it has a theology-atheism. Its religious symbol is the Darwinian fish with feet. The fish is sold through the pages of Free Inquiry and advertised as “a plaque for your car.” And while most present-day humanists might wish to forget it, according to the Internal Revenue Service, the American Humanist Association was founded as “a church.” One of the organization’s leading spokespersons is the Reverend Dr. Michael Newdow, the “minister of the First Atheist Church of True Science” whose mission is “to grow that Atheistic religious organization.” Although atheism is a vital part of the secular humanist worldview, it also consists of a philosophy (naturalism), an ethics (relativistic), a biology (neo-Darwinian), et cetera. Secular humanism is the primary religious worldview allowed in America’s public schools today, thanks to Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan Jr., a secular humanist, in his Edwards v. Aguillard decision.
