A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

No, it is not.


"automatic acceptance" aside, would you add that there just isn't any reason or motivation or need to embrace ANY of "those philosophies"?


Just like there is no reason to automatically embrace what some long dead megalomaniac Persian had to say.


I did not accept, automatically or not, or embrace, nor need, nor had any motivation, nor did I study anything, or change any beliefs, to be a Secular Humanist. I read some of their stuff and they agreed with me. Secular Humanism is not something to become, it's what you are.

I am a Humanist. I believe in a rational philosophy of life, informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by a desire to do good for its own sake and not by an expectation of a reward or fear of punishment in an afterlife.

...what I'm talking about is the skeptic secular humanist having desire/need/intention to identify themselves as a member of a group other than Secular Humanism (take your pick: Falun Gong, Confucian, Deist, or Buddhist).


No such "need" exists. I have no "need" to call myself a Secular Humanist.


being skeptic... by definition, overrides any "need to identify" with a philosophical ideology.


Again, no such need exists.

Why do you have this need to first and foremost identify as a bahai?
