What is Humanism all about?

Dorset Humanists have Pocket Pamphlets that explain about Humanism: 

What do Humanists do?

  • Think for themselves about what is right and wrong, based on reason and respect for others.
  • Find meaning, beauty, and joy in the one life we have, without the need for an afterlife.
  • Look to science instead of religion as the best way to discover and understand the world.
  • Believe people can use empathy and compassion to make the world a better place for everyone.
  • Are you a humanist? Take the BHA quick quiz to find out.
