I’ve read rants about humanism from the far-right but I’ve also heard some conservatives use it as a pejorative as well. What does this term mean to you and are you support humanist views or not? Is it being used differently than in the sense of renaissance humanism? Aren’t liberalism (conservatives and liberals in the US) and modern science humanist projects?

Therefore they hate humanism, science and anything that might contradict the word view they dreamed up from a 2000 years old book.
- Yes, that’s what I’m asking. How do conservatives view it?
I always just thought - in a modern sense - it meant a view that human society is determined by humans rather than deterministic (“human nature”) biology or by divine order. Also the idea that humans can understand the world through reason and scientific discovery.6d0
