We DO have faith, say Humanists

4:00pm Friday 15th May 2009

THE British Humanist Association has enjoyed a surge in membership as a result of its “atheist bus” campaign, but Dorset Humanists insist that there’s more to Humanism that anti-religious messages. They have been inspired to be actively involved with Bournemouth and Poole’s Big Green Fortnight and hosted a lecture last night by environmental campaigner and BBC personality Brigit Strawbridge, kickstarting the fortnight.

David Warden, chair of Dorset Humanists, said: “Humanists have a proud tradition of questioning and scepticism and we don’t agree with everything done in the name of environmentalism. “It’s clear, however, that we can all agree on the need to take care of the resources we have for the benefit of current and future generations. “Humanism is not a ‘faith’ as such, but we do have faith in the ability of human beings to find rational solutions to the problems we face.”

Dorset Humanists have monthly talks on topics of interest. For further information phone 01202 428506 or visit

In response to your post on environmentalism :

Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

Industrial Society is destroying necessary things [Animals, Trees, Air, Water and Land] for making unnecessary things [consumer goods].

"Growth Rate" - "Economy Rate" - "GDP"

These are figures of "Ecocide".
These are figures of "crimes against Nature".
These are figures of "destruction of Ecosystems".
These are figures of "Insanity, Abnormality and Criminality".

The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature [Animals, Trees, Air, Water and Land].

Chief Seattle of the Indian Tribe had warned the destroyers of ecosystems way back in 1854 :

Only after the last tree has been cut down,
Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you realize that you cannot eat money.
