A secular man is emotionally intelligent; he does not impose his will on others. He recognizes not just the physical sovereignty of people but their emotional freedom and their freedom of thought and inquiry. He loves life as opposed to the psychotic mystic who is obsessed with self-mortification and death.
Even though ethics and morality are not the business of CAMIDRCS because the organization is established to defend metaphysical and epistemological facts; but, still it recognizes the importance of discipline in a society andthe reason that I decided to be silent about ethical and political systems is that it is man-made and subject to mutation by caprice and caprice brings about division and conflict.
But even a secular man has a character; in general according to my analysisI think the secular man is a man;who respects the freedom and will of other people; he is not a schizophrenic control freak who is obsessed with the subjugation of others under his boot.He is allergic to all types of cults whether natural or supernatural. He is a prudentman not a believer or gullible. Subjugation, vagary and beliefare the specific traitsof mystics, idealists and theirpartners―politicians.
A secular and rational man loves wisdom and the pursuit of knowledge to discover the unknown; he is a savant an intellectual and a book obsessed philosopher.He is a man who swallows every good book available to him. He loves his family, he respects his society and most importantly he abidesby the rule of law that he voted for to respect.
He respects the intellectual development of himself and others he is not an obscurant and a retardant force like mystics. He protects others and himself like a fragile sprouting plant which needs protection and nourishment; he empowers himself with wisdom and knowledge on every subject! He is extremely hungry for knowledge and facilitates the nourishment of others with wisdom. He understands that it is the ignorance and naivety of people which allows the spread of pseudosciences; thus, he combats that with empowerment and information―teaching people the right teachings― the teachings of logic,skepticism and critical thinking.
He is a staunch apostle of reality and realism; he defends facts and opposes the sacrifice of facts in the name of ‘morality’ for fiction.He respects the facts whether they are in his interest or whether they make him lugubrious.For example, evolution is an established fact but honestly speaking if you ask me whether I rather have evolved from some lower animal or something better and higher—I will choose something better and higher; but whatcan I do—that is not my choice; I do not make the rules—Nature makes the rules; that is the choice of nature; the true divinity.
He is not a man inebriated with mythology to the stage of delusion and schizophrenia. He is a prudent man; askeptic and an inquirer of reality.He is a philanthropistwho loves sentient beings he wants to save others from extinction brought upon by pseudosciences and charlatans of every kind. He has an open mind and he is always ready to submit to new evidence; if presented without error and bonafide. He is not tenacious, dogmatic or fanatic. He aspires to reach for the stars and the era of the space age as opposed to fundamental fanatics who want to drag us back to the Iron Age.
He is self-regulated in his social union and engagement with other people in the society.As he believes in nature he understands that his nature is the source of his behavior. Hence, has no issue in his conduct. If he is apolitician he is the vanguard of intellectuals; of inquiry; of wisdom; of futurism andthe enemy of pseudosciences which exist to exterminate humanity.He is a hedonist who self-preserves; who takes care of his health as in for longevity and even a transcendentalist who improves the organs he acquired in evolutionto be something better.He is a Sci-fi fan who loves nature and the scientific method. He raises his kids to be skeptics and naturalists like himself with discipline as to their duty to their self, society and their country. He exhibits a clement and conducive character in his society. He loves his society that he makes up as a part and as an individual; he aligns and labors with his fellow beings for the benefit of individual interests.
He promotes epistemological realism, rationalism, objectivity; metaphysical naturalism and ethical hedonism as well as ethical transcendence. He is a visionary who sees into the stars and the future not in to the grave.He aspires for the establishment of a futuristic and rational society rather than a mystical and primitive society.Inshort, he is a futurist and the apostle of the great vision of futurism. He hates any type of ignorance which fosters superstition and dogma. He teaches his society skeptical thinking to liberate them from the stupor of ignorance that detains them is hogwash beliefs, ideologies, and mythologies; which are snares for their demise―he makes them critical like Socrates attempted to do;who was charged with corrupting the youth of Athens; because he attempted to make those young men think critical. He had a choice to flee like Anaxagoras but he did not― he took on his fate with honorand valiance. He even stated bravely “unexamined life is not worth living.” Thus, the school of skepticism and the ‘impious’philosopher Socrates became the victim of the lowly self. Of the lowly self—which hates reason, individual liberty,intellectuals,hedonism, and transcendence―but which loves indolence,subjugation, mythology, the suffering of the individual and death.
Making people critical, rational and informed will help them in making better life choices;but charlatans and tyrannical government all over the worldlove nothing but a collection of gullible, malleable, mystical and naïve people to help them intheir subjugation of the society and they do not like the ramification of knowledge, logic and information in the society because an informed educated and health man is a free man impossible to convince with claptrap and enslave.In short, secularism and the secular character as beautiful as they are—protect the individual and the society from schizophrenia and irrational madness; it bestows secular morality; it drives humanity into the stars and the multiverse rather than the grave; it promotes life rather than death; freethought rather than obscurancy; facts rather than fiction; full mental, emotional, physical, economic and social health rather than morbidity and the dejection of hedonism mentally, emotionally, physically, socially, and economically.It promotes reason rather than vagary; it is founded on eternal nature, on logic and the emotional well being of the individual, and his happiness.
