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.

Witchcraft, Superstition and Global Humanism

Global Humanism PosterSaturday 14th December 2.00pm 
Moordown Community Centre, Coronation Avenue, Moordown, Bournemouth BH9 1TW

Humanists and rationalists in many parts of the world are engaged in dangerous struggles against witchcraft, superstition, and fanatical religion. In August, a leading campaigner against superstition in India was shot dead by gunmen, and in May, a young Humanist teacher was abducted by a Maoist group and forced into marriage. 

In this talk, Bob Churchill will be outlining the international work of the IHEU, with a special focus on projects in Uganda where witchcraft, child sacrifice, extreme homophobia and AIDS present major challenges to development.

Bob Churchill  is Communications Officer for the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU). Having worked professionally for national Humanist organisations in Britain, Uganda, and lately at IHEU itself, he has a unique perspective on organised Humanism around the world and will explain how it is expressed in different regions, and discuss the most significant challenges it faces going forward.

“Discover how international Humanism is fighting superstition and fanatical religion, and helping to create a better world”
