i think that humanist people must have a god. and that god is human being himself.

definition:

humanist: people who love human being and understand human value.

god: an entity to worship.

humanists always denied god of established religion calling he latter inhuman barbaric etc. but like everybody
humanists should also have a god whom he serve.i think that that god would be human being himself. a humanist
should accept human being with all his vice and virtue. a humanist should not try to change a human being by
imposing rock solid belief system upon the latter. rather a humanist must accept a human being "as he is". i think
that is true humanism.

Where have you gathered the false premise that everybody should worship a "God".

i think that that god would be human being himself.

Humans cannot simply worship other humans as "Gods", it makes no sense.

a humanist should accept human being with all his vice and virtue.

This is unrelated to your resolution; "the god of humanists is human being"

a humanist should not try to change a human being by imposing rock solid belief system upon the latter.

This argument is not reconcilable with your resolution, therefore it is invalid.

rather a humanist must accept a human being "as he is". i think that is true humanism.

And?

1. why con think that everybody need not worship a god?

2. "Humans cannot simply worship other humans as "Gods", it makes no sense." really? then why some human worship film stars like god when the film star is a human being? we call these worshipers "fan". does that make any sense? why some human being worshiped bittles like god in late sixties or seventies when the 4 bittles are just as human as their fan? does that make any sense?

3. no it is not unrelated to my resolution. it is the way humanist should worship human being.

4. the rest 2 arguments are the way humanist should worship human being. they are very much related.

Long debates turn into tedious repetitions. I try not to read five round debates myself, and wouldn't ask others to read one either, which means I don't want to be in one.

If you change it to three rounds, I'll accept.

Humanism:
1. An outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters.
2. A Renaissance cultural movement that turned away from medieval scholasticism and revived interest in ancient Greek and Roman thought.
