How can I be happy?

What should we think about death?

How do we know what’s true?

What makes something right or wrong?

We’ve teamed up with our patron Stephen Fry to explore humanist ideas about some of life’s big questions.

Humanists are people who shape their own lives in the here and now, because we believe it’s the only life we have. We make sense of the world through logic, reason, and evidence, and always seek to treat those around us with warmth, understanding, and respect.

Across the four videos, Stephen Fry examines life’s biggest questions and brings to light how a humanist perspective grounded in rational thinking and kindness can be empowering, motivating, humbling, or even liberating.

We need your support

At Humanists UK, we support lasting change for a better society, championing ideas for the one life we have.

We work to create a tolerant world where rational thinking and kindness prevail. We campaign on behalf of the non-religious and in support of human rights and equality in the UK and internationally. We want to see the UK as a secular state with no religious privilege and no discrimination based on religion or belief.

How humanist are you?
