I grew up in a family that stopped going to church when my grandparents were young. My mom must have felt a little guilty and sent my brother and I to Sunday school a couple times but I was just born one of those people who were not buying any of it. I had a conversation with a university prof (baptist) recently who referred to being an atheist as my religion. I told him I've always considered atheism to be a lack of religion not a type. I have yet to really formulate a philosophy in life despite being 45 years old already so I'm exploring Humanism. Can anyone recommend any good books on the subject?
Several. First - some free resources - Video: What does it mean to be a Humanist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shv7htovpbQ

The 10 Humanist Commitments - https://americanhumanistcenterforeducation.org/living-humanist-values-the-ten-commitments/
And finally - the books I recommend on Humanism (the first section are my books - but further down the list are the classic works - specifically the one by Corliss Lamont. I also think Ramendra Nath is one of the finest Humanist thinkers alive today. Just my opinion of course. Let me know if you are looking for anything else.
