Back when I was still a theist, I left a religious service when it struck me as impious to claim to know God’s schedule. And wasn’t it a little cheeky for anyone to claim to know what God wanted? In our own way, I find that my fellow humanists, agnostics, and atheists sometimes share this trait of claiming to know more than we can know.

Whether there is a God or gods or not, I am convinced that neither you nor I are omniscient. Our challenge is to lead a committed life while affirming we don’t have, and we don’t need, all the answers.

Dr. Michael S. Franch is an Ethical Culture Leader and an active member of the National Leaders Council of the American Ethical Union. He served as Leader of the Baltimore Ethical Society from 1975-1984 and is currently affiliate minister at the First Unitarian Church, Baltimore.
