The Secular Web is owned and operated by Internet Infidels Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization dedicated to promoting and defending a naturalistic worldview on the Internet.

As defined by Paul Draper, naturalism is "the hypothesis that the natural world is a closed system, which means that nothing that is not a part of the natural world affects it." Thus, "naturalism implies that there are no supernatural entities"—including God.

Quotation of the Minute
"It is contrary to the truth and completely unfounded for the Moral Majority to continue to condemn Humanism as 'amoral' and 'the most dangerous religion in the world.' It mistakes certain moral advances approved by Humanists for the equivalent of moral breakdown. The Moral Majority's own morality is absolutistic in that it believes it alone possesses God's truth, and that there is no room for the discussion or dissent, which is the essence of democracy. This self-righteous Moral Majority -- which we are happy to know is actually a minority -- greatly needs to improve its own moral values, as evident in its crude and false denunciations of organizations and individuals." Corliss Lamont, The Philosophy of Humanism (Seventh ed., New York: Continuum, 1990), p. xi.
