Principles of Humanism

We will investigate and uncover the principles behind Humanism. With the aid of others such as Fred Edwords of the American Humanist Association (on DVD), we will investigate a prescriptive recommendation about how to use the term Humanism. This will include four main characteristics:  (1) a method of inquiry; (2) a cosmic world view; (3) a con- crete set of ethical recommendations for each individual's life stance; and (4) a main political stance, that is, separation of church and state.   Following the ?disrobing? of the term Humanism, the group will split up into groups of near equal number and discuss the above points of what it means to be a Humanist.  Following the discussion we will evaluate this year's topics and suggest topics for next year's meetings. Come with your ideas! Ron Scribner facilitator

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
