What’s the difference? Not much, at least on paper. For myself the difference lies in the approach taken in regards to engaging theists on an intellectual level, be they moderates or extremists. Humanism, in my eyes, disregards the militant approach adopted by the modern ‘atheist’ movement (it would be far more appropriate to call these people ‘anti-theists’) in favor of a more rational avenue that encourages dialogue and the understanding that simply because we have theological differences doesn’t mean we have to deride each other for it. On the latter, modern ‘atheism’ seems fixated on doing the exact opposite. To me that is, ultimately, a pointless endeavor.
At the end of the day, at least with theological claims, there is no definitive way to either prove or disprove anything. Neither avenue exists. It’s all conjecture and the more we fight about that, the farther we drift from a viable solution in bringing us together as human beings.
