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.

The Ethics of War

Saturday 08th October 2.00pm
Moordown Community Centre, Coronation Avenue, Moordown, Bournemouth BH9 1TWWar Ethics poster

A presentation by Royal Navy veteran and Humanist celebrant, Peter Herridge.

Human beings have been fighting each other since prehistoric times, and people have been discussing the rights and wrongs of it for almost as long. Most people agree that war is terrible and should be avoided if at all possible. But are there situations when war is the lesser evil? If so, how should a ‘just war’ be conducted and should democratic leaders ever be prosecuted for ‘war crimes’?

Everyone welcome!
