Best Answer

Secular Humanists believe suffering comes from the cause of people or series of unfortunate events. As there is no god or faith outside science death is an end and nothing more. No bright lights at the end of the tunnel, etc. By this cynical worldview suffering can also be viewed as nothing more than an unfortunate emotion evolution has brought on.
