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.

Dorset Humanists Discussion Group (DHDG)

Once a month Dorset Humanists meet at Savoy Hotel** in Bournemouth (in the Ballroom or Victoria Room - ask at reception). The first part of the meeting is a discussion about any topics of interest. Bring a book or newspaper article to discuss. The second part of the meeting is a discussion about a 'Special Topic of the Month' - your ideas about future topics are welcome.

Discussion continue in Dorset Humanists ThinkHumanism Forum.
