Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events.

Dorset Humanists decisively influence Government thinking on the teaching of evolution in primary schools

In July, Dorset Humanist Chris Street met with Desmond Swaine MP to discuss teaching evolution in primary schools and he submitted a proposal to the Government on behalf of Humanists4Science. Chris is absolutely delighted to announce that that on 11 November 2009 the Government passed legislation to make the teaching of evolution compulsory in primary schools (5-11 year olds) from September 2011.
