There are very real things in existence that are so far we cant see them, they are really there. This idea assumes that there is nothing happening which accounts for the matter in the universe when we can't see it (nothing is solid/quaking mess). Or multiple universes where in which the rules are different. That could even be the case in other galaxies. We built tools to measure regular behavior of existence, those measurements are not what the universe is made of. Assuming that this is the only way things could be is a big assumption which isn't based on good evidence.

+Erik Poupaert All men being equal I have a hard time seeing that the statement "we should work towards furthering human flurishing" results in some kind of totalitarian state. It just does not follow.

What humanists tend to do is say that we should value human flurishing since it's good for humanity and not waste time trying to get an excuse to force others to fall in line. It's a tautology, human flurishing is good for human flurishing. Wasting time debating groundings for morality, while fun at times, distracts from real problems in the world that we could be solving (or at worst leading people to defend genocide).

You can see it as long as the person agrees that human wellbeing is a good thing then they're welcome to work towards that wellbeing regardless of their motives.
