New Zealand Association of Rationalists and HumanistsPromoting Humanism, Secularism and Reason
Who we Are
We are a not-for-profit organisation which exists to serve the interests of the non-religious; those who do not have a belief in gods or the supernatural. We’ve been serving New Zealand’s atheist community since 1927.
What we Believe
“How should we live?” is a question that both secular and religious philosophers have provided many different answers to. Members of the NZARH believe that this question is best answered by a secular humanist approach.
The NZARH strongly believes that government should be secular; that is dealing with the issues of this world rather than following a religious agenda.
A rationalist believes that knowledge and truth are ascertained by using reason and logic, and not by divine or supernatural revelation.
