More than 100 academics and intellectuals sign the Humanist Manifesto 2000, denying that "religious piety is the sole guarantee of moral virtue" and noting that "theists and transcendentalists have been both for and against slavery, the caste system, war, capital punishment and monogamy."

The Humanist Manifesto 2000: A Call for New Planetary Humanism differs from earlier manifestos in that it is a full-length book rather than an essay-length document and is published by the Council for Secular Humanism rather than the American Humanist Association.
