1. World view; HUMANISTS-Starts and ends with man: BIBLE-Starts and ends with God (Gen 1:1; John 1:1-3; Rev 1:8) 2. Salvation; HUMANISTS-We must save ourselves: BIBLE-we cannot save ourselves (Eph 2:8-9) 3. Ethics; HUMANISTS-No absolute right or wrong: BIBLE-God is judge. Absolute good and evil epist (Rev 20:11-15) 4. Reason; HUMANISTS-Basisi is within man himself- a result of evolutionary development: BIBLE-God equips man with reason (Gen 1: 26-27) 5. Mankind; HUMANISTS-Value is up to the individual: BIBLE-God commands us to love and care for others (John 15:12) 6. Eternity; HUMANISTS-Reincarnation- the soul of man returns to earth in another form: BIBLE-After death, man's soul will spend eternity either in Heaven or Hell (Rev 20:15;1 Thess 4:17) 7.

Between those two and comparing them with only the points that you have put up, I would have to go with Humanism. I suppose it could be mostly that I have a problem believing in God so as an extention I can't see things such as morals and good judgement coming from a source that I don't believe in.
