      A Religion For A New Age. by. John J. Dunphy (originally published in the January-February issue of The Humanist magazine). This essay has been denounced since its publication.   Posthumanism in the Age of Humanism: Mind, Matter, and Life Sciences after Kant is a very welcome extension of the idea of posthumanist prefiguration into the Enlightenment, German Idealism and Romanticism.

    In this little book, Christopher Dawson () explains why liberal humanism failed in its mission to supplant Christianity as the soul of Western culture, and why its demise threatens not only Europe, but also the world with a new “dark age.”. The Humanist magazine, the house organ of the religion of Humanism, recently conducted an essay contest and published the prize-winning essays in its January-February issue. One startlingly frank essay by John J. Dunphy, called "A Religion for a New Age," lays all the Humanist cards on the table.

    Secular Humanism is an outgrowth of 18th century enlightenment rationalism and 19th century freethought. Many secular groups, such as the Council for Democratic and Secular Humanism and the American Rationalist Federation, and many otherwise unaffiliated academic philosophers and scientists, advocate this philosophy. A New Age outgrowth of Secular Humanism might be called Cosmic Humanism. “In its broadest sense, New Age thinking can be characterized as a form of utopianism, the desire to create a better society, a ‘New Age’ in which humanity lives in harmony with itself, nature, and the cosmos” (Understanding the Times, David Noebel, p. ).
