Abstract: The argument of this paper is that secular humanism’s inability to accommodate the empirically established universal presence of religion in human nature undermines secular humanism’s claim to be a viable world-view for mankind. This failure to live up to its self-proclaimed empiricism unleashes a cascade of consequences that undermines its internal coherence, diminishes its value as a rational argument and leaves the arguments for theism untouched.
