Just curious: what's logical about humanism?

I'm guessing what travelling fella meant was that reality is subject to interpretation. My reality is not your reality....it's like the glass is half empty or half full deal. I guess reality would be the glass has water in it
Thank goodness! I've been saying that for years!
It's not half empty and it's not half full, it's just half a glass of fluid!

it is futile to discuss the destruction of something you believe does not exist.
its a religious concept no birth or death never ending selfhood. worldwide, many believe this --not just christians. very few, don't.

Well, since you're not actually giving an argument for it, and I don't see anything logical with it...

Humanism is more like a way of living and philosophy. I wouldn't call it a religion.

And thinking logically is one of the most important things in humanism. If you looked it up, you'd know that.

I'm not a humanist by the way..
