For A Happy Life!

 

Humanists are concerned with enjoying the one life we have, and spreading that happiness throughout the world. Happiness is achieved through hard work, an ethical life and care for the self and others.

For An Ethical Life!

 

Humanism is a democratic and ethical life stance, in which human beings have the right and the responsibility to shape and give meaning to their lives in a good way.

For A Rational Life!

How do we know what we know? Good decisions can only be made on valid and reliable knowledge that can be obtained through rational discourse and science.

We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It

Humanism is important because we need to realise that Human values are a worthy pursuit to ensure the success of our species and its future generations. We understand that the responsibility for ushering this new future is within our hands and our hands alone, not in the external agency of a supernatural force, and this is more understood in communities becoming more and more pluralistic. In today’s realities, Humanism is a light that shines a path to focusing on our common humanity, rather than our differences, to foster democratic dialogue in better, stronger, freer communities.

Recent Campaigns

Secularism

Secular Humanism is a non-religious worldview rooted in science, naturalistic philosophy, and Humanist morality and ethics. Rather than faith, doctrine, or mysticism, secular humanists use reason, compassion, and common sense to find solutions to human problems.
We promote universal values such as integrity, benevolence, fairness, and responsibility, and we believe that with reason, an open marketplace of ideas, good will, and tolerance, progress can be made toward building a better world for ourselves and future generations.

Voice For Choice Coallition

Our worldview of Humanism is not a complicated one: Be responsible, Be respectful, Be rational, think for yourself and use the best thinking tools we have at our disposal, that is, Science. We are squarely responsible for whether or not we can relieve the suffering of this world and make things better for all of us. (continue reading our statement at Malta’s first rally for choice)

Cremation Campaign

Humanism is an ethical worldview beyond the belief in the supernatural, and as such, we value the legacy of our deceased beloved, and the legacy that we leave behind ourselves, which we believe to be the only real afterlife there is. To quote Carl Sagan, “to live in the hearts we leave behind is to live forever.”

Education & Ethics

In 2012, the latest National Curriculum Framework, drafted upon national consultation, was published. The Malta Humanist Association participated in that consultation, suggesting that ethics be taught in schools from a secular and philosophical perspective. This suggestion was supported nationally even through teacher consultation and the teaching of ethics in schools not only became legally binding in the curriculum, but has also been implemented over the past 4 years. Teachers have been trained and this year was the first time that students sat for a MATSEC exam in Ethics.

More Details

I don’t think we should ever allow religion the trick of maintaining that; the spiritual, and the beautiful, and the noble, and the altruistic, and the morally strong, and the virtuous are in any way inventions of religion or particular, or peculiar to religion

Stephen Fry

The meaning of life is not to be discovered only after death in some hidden, mysterious realm; on the contrary, it can be found by eating the succulent fruit of The Tree of Life and by living in the here and now as fully and creatively as we can.

Paul Kurtz

Unfortunately, strong political affiliations, religious dogma, skin color, language differences and uneven wealth distribution have the power of separating us, human beings. These are cosmetic differences, some of which are unnecessary.

We are more alike than we think and if we support and tolerate one another, no matter where we come from, and if we plan for those who will succeed us, the world would be a much better place.
