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.

Transhumanism: Utopia or nightmare?

Thursday 27th October 7.30pmTranshumanism Poster
Moordown Community Centre, Coronation Avenue, Moordown, Bournemouth BH9 1TW

A presentation and discussion led by Chris Street.

'Transhumanism' is the belief that we can fundamentally improve the human condition by developing technologies to eliminate ageing and greatly enhance our intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.

How would these genetically modified ‘transhumans’ with computer implants in their brains, nanomachines fixing their cells, and cybernetic body parts regard the rest of us; and is it ethical to tamper with nature in this way? 

Everyone welcome!

Free entry (donations appreciated)
