It was Voltaire who said ‘As long as people believe in absurdities they will continue to commit atrocities’.
In this month’s bulletin and my July letter (PDF downloads) we report on Christians who torture children in the belief that they are witches.
Also this month: godless morality, spirituality for sceptics, a humanist view of sex and sexuality, humanism and positive psychology, a surprising development in secularist thinking, and why Richard Dawkins appears to believe in pre-existence. We look forward to seeing you at our debate and cream tea on 9th July, and at our other great events coming up this Summer.
Chris has posted a new updated event programme (to the right of this post under ‘Dorset Humanists Info’) for you to download and don’t forget to keep an eye on the website, our Facebook page and our bulletins for further news and updates.

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.
