Buddhism, Secular Transcendence and Humanism

Oh yes I have got carried away and have written a paper based on a talk I gave to the South Somerset Humanist Group. 8-11-2012. In exploring if Humanism and Buddhism are compatible I found it lead me up many paths, particularly that of looking at secular and supernaturalist views of religion and transcendence. It also explores links to Christianity,Theism, Mindfulness, Consciousness and Memes.  If in dipping in you find it interesting it is easier to read  if you print it off. For article see Religion.  This thememseems to be cropping up in other strange places.  See this article in the Financial Times on Christian and Buddhist monasticism.
