Once a Baptized Christian, by college I was a humanist (my definition, "an atheist with a heart"). Humanism affirms that people can solve their problems without imagining supernatural beings; the arts and sciences flourish when ignorance and superstition are thus overthrown. I am a signer of Humanist Manifesto 2000, and in 2004 I was given the Isaac Asimov Award by the American Humanist Association.
