A Hitchhiker’s Guide To Humanism

Monday 3rd October 7.30pm NM Humanists

The Rydal Arms, 93 Station Road, New Milton, BH25 6JJ

New Milton Humanists present an informal discussion hosted by Jane Bannister

“We humans can be kind, loving and moral beings without deluding ourselves that someone made us that way.” – Susan Blackmore

If you agree that reason and evidence provide a better way of understanding the universe than belief in God or gods; and ethics and morality should be based on their consequences for people, society and our planet, rather than on ancient dogma from religious texts, you are probably a Humanist.

In this informal talk and discussion, Jane will discuss Humanist values, the origins of Humanist morals, and the Humanist paradox.

Come along and find out if you are a Humanist too.

Everyone welcome!
