A Child’s View of Humanism and Humanity

I know every parent is amazed by their children, but mine blew me away the other day.

 My son spends a lot of time thinking. He’s gifted so this isn’t surprising. My impression of him is that he spends a lot of time thinking about architecture and how to build things. He’s 10 and into Minecraft and Legos and his major form of self entertainment is and continues to be building things out of blocks, and Legos and looking at blue prints for how things are built.

The other day, he came home from school and said he had been doing some thinking on the bus.  He said he had come up with 4 principles about life and humanity. Here they are:
  • There is no god – only the good inside of us
  • There is no devil – only the bad inside of us
  • There is no war – only really big arguments
  • There is no evil – just misled people

I have no idea why he had decided to think such deep thoughts.

He asked me what I thought of his conclusions. I said – it sounded a lot like Humanism to me. What do you think?
