Like many who debate the ethics of transhumanism, I'm sometimes confused by the terminology that is thrown around by the participants. In particular, I find myself confused by the distinction between terms like humanism, transhumanism and post humanism.

Humanism now a recognized religion in US prison system? Here's why that's good news

There's been much consternation about a recent court settlement treating Humanism as a religion. Many Humanist are taking issue with this, on reddit, in the blogoshphere and in the real world, not least because "Humanism isn't a religion, dammit!!"

The 'humanism is a religion' argument is one from anti-humanist Christians that many are used to refuting.

Humanist need not be concerned too much. The court settlement between the American Humanist Association and the US government will mean that "the Federal Bureau of Prisons will acknowledge humanism as a worldview that deserves the same recognition as theistic religious beliefs." (note that the settlement doesn't say "deserves recognition as a religious belief...thank you, AHA). In effect this will mean that many more people will gain access to, and learn about, humanism and the ethics and principles it espouses. it will also add to the precedent of the US Army allowing Humanism as a recognized belief system, and other court cases, building towards mainstream acceptance of humanism in society.

Sooner or later most in society will come to grips with the fact that Humanism isn't a religion in any modern understanding of the word. Until then, this is another advance for our philosophy becoming recognized, accepted, and understood.

Humanist Ideals organized as a legit church?

About a year ago, I started a subreddit /r/ModernHellenism mostly as a joke. I also created a website www.modernhellenism.org. The more I thought about it, the more I kinda want this to be a real thing. Of course a literal belief in the greek gods is not really the goal, but "worshiping" the ideals the gods represent. Like praise Eleos and Aphrodite and condemn Aries and Erebus.

I guess the goal is to give people who are not religious the advantages that organized religions offer. Things like community, a place for discussion, and the many tax advantages of religions (not to mention the recent trend towards religious exemption from certain laws).

Is this something that has potential? I assume people have tried similar endeavors with varying success. Is something like this even worth the hassle?
