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.
Keeping creationism out of science, and your MP's voting record

(Please note I've realised that the EDMs mentioned in the original version of this post have already passed, so it is too late to act. I apologise for any inconvenience caused by my earlier call to action).

Only Annette Brooke and Robert Walter of Dorset's eight MPs signed EDMs endorsing the view that creationism should be kept out of science education, and Tobias Ellwood said he is unable to sign EDMs because he is a Parliamentary Private Secretary.

The skeptical voter site provides further information on how individual MPs have voted on various issues relevant to a humanist worldview, including climate change, abortion, gay rights, faith schools etc.
