Why Am I A Humanist?

If you are wondering, who is a humanist, google will give you a clear answer as below: "Who trusts to the scientific method when it comes to understanding how the universe works and rejects the idea of the supernatural, makes their ethical decisions based on  reason, empathy, and a concern for human beings and other sentient animals . The Golden Rule can be expressed positively: ' Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself . ' " When I say humanist, most of them, get it wrong. A humanist may or may not be an atheist. " While atheism is merely the absence of belief, humanism is a positive attitude to the world, centred on human experience, thought, and hopes ." Though this is the definition, I feel atheism also centred on human experiences and science. And that's why, I decided to write a bit more so that, I hope at least some of you could really understand the concept of humanism and may get a chance for self evaluation. This is not to insult
