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.

What is Humanism?

Thursday 29th September 7.30pmDorset Humanists (crop)
Moordown Community Centre, Coronation Avenue, Moordown, Bournemouth BH9 1TW
 A discussion led by David Warden, Chair of Dorset Humanists. 

Guest speaker: Chris Street of Teaching Secular Worldviews.

“We humans can be kind, loving and moral beings without deluding ourselves that someone made us that way.” – Susan Blackmore
If you agree that reason and evidence provide a better way of understanding the universe than belief in God or gods; and ethics and morality should be based on their consequences for people, society and our planet, rather than on ancient dogma from religious texts, you are probably a humanist.
In this introductory talk and discussion, David will discuss Humanist values, the origins of the modern Humanist movement, and some of the challenges facing Humanists today.

Chris Street will talk about the inclusion of Humanism in the Dorset RE Syllabus.

Come along and find out if you are a Humanist too.
Everyone welcome!
