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.

Reconciling Altruism and ‘The Selfish Gene’

Selfish Gene PosterThursday 24th May 7.30pm
Moordown Community Centre, Coronation Avenue, Moordown, Bournemouth BH9 1TW

A presentation by James Fradgley

What do we mean by ‘altruism’ and how can we explain this type of behaviour if we are simply machines created by our selfish genes?

In this illustrated presentation, scientist James Fradgley looks for answers in an intriguing variety of places including genetics, statistics, multicellular organisms, social structures, philosophical dilemmas and religion.

Join us for “a fascinating introduction to how our genes influence behaviour”.

Free entry (donations appreciated).     Everyone welcome!
