2004). Solutions to human problems Look to nature for the answers because they are not important otherwise Secular Humanists believe that all human issues have a scientific explanation to them (rooted to nature) and therefore resolve these problems with science and facts. They do not believe in God or any divine power. Atheistic Existentialism believes the same core concepts as Naturalism and Secular Humanism in that all problems are issues stem from a scientific reason including all human characteristics; therefore, they address problems with science since they do not believe that there is a God. (Retrieved October 31, 2010 from tentialism) We are nothing but organic machines. In addition, since nothing but matter exists there was no one or nothing to create this matter. Thus, matter must be eternal. "God" is just another name for the material universe. This form of Pantheism has more in common with atheism than with other forms of theism. We cannot change the past. Why live there? Why beat ourselves up over past sins and regrets? The present is the only place we effectuate permanent and lasting change. If we are mindful of the present, if we use this "now" to know we are safe and doing God's work, the future will necessarily take care of itself and all will be well (Ankerber g, J. & Weldon,J. 2004).

CWV 101, Module 5 Worldview Tables Assignment (Heb. 13:5b). Human value There is none and the only value is nature Secular Humanists believe that life is meaningful through gaining a better understandi ng of ourselves s our history through, intellectual achievement s and science, but they do not apply any faith or belief in God. They believe that society determines what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. Atheistic Existentialism is the belief that humans are valuable since they are capable of making conscious decisions and that all decisions are correct if made through free will. They believe that human value only exists when an individual is capable of making decisions of their own will and once they are unable to do so they then hold no value. (Retrieved October 31, 2010 from tentialism) Any future religious belief must facilitate a healthier human existence. Thus, it should promote democratic freedom, racial tolerance, female dignity, the right to be as one is or desires to be, population control, compassion ate euthanasia, biological research, human evolution and a sustainable natural environme nt.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
