Research on humanism

It doesn’t place responsibility on supernatural forces, but rather states that we have responsibility and cannot blame other things for the bad we have caused, or didn’t stop. We must choose and control how things around us end up.

Truth is only based on physical matter and not on spiritual non-seen things. They say that everything including complex concepts like love is based on some physical interaction.

They also believe in progress through scientific progress.
