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.

A Darwin Day Celebration with Crispian Jago

 

Celebrate Darwin Day* in style with a delicious two course meal in BIC’s Purbeck Lounge, followed by an entertaining presentation from the irreverent and irrepressible Crispian Jago (entertainment-only option also available. See booking information panel below).

With a selection of classic comedy clips, Crispian will be demonstrating that whilst we should respect a person’s right to hold whatever beliefs they like, ridicule of those beliefs (not the person) is not off-limits and can be one of many effective ways to highlight and combat irrational ideas.

“Celebrate Darwin Day in style with a delicious lunch followed by entertainment from the irrepressible Crispian Jago”

Crispian Jago writes the popular satirical skeptical blog Science, Reason & Critical Thinking, and co-founded and co-organises both the Hampshire Skeptics Society, and Winchester Skeptics in the Pub.

Everyone welcome! (ticketholders only to this event)
