Is a Return to the Origins of Humanism still possible for European Civilization?

Humanism

Telephone conversations with the dead

Heard on NPR, This American Life.

Edit: A very moving audio report on how people in a part of Japan cope with their emotions by talking to their dead kin over a one-way "phone call".

Is humanism rational?

Recently, I have had increasingly nihilistic thoughts that are really starting to bother me. It feels to me like there are no real morals in life, life has no (inherent) worth, etc. I'm really unsure what to think anymore; nihilism seems more rational than humanism to me, somehow. However, I'm aware of quite a large number of extremely intelligent and accomplished humanists, such as the ones towards the top of the screen.

What convinces you of the humanist perspective, rather than the nihilistic one? I'd really like to be more of a humanist myself, but reading up on nihilism really bogs me down.

Humanism and God

First time poster, but I've been lurking for a few days now.

I've recently lost my faith in Christianity. That said, I've always been fascinated with humanistic ideas. I feel as if human curiosity and innovation is the only way to better the human condition.

With that, I'd like to say that I still feel that there is a stronger power than us, but one that doesn't intervene with human affairs as many faiths say it does.

What I'm asking is, do humanism and my interpretation on a stronger force contradict each other?

Thanks in advance!
