Defending Secular Humanism

The topic of this month's meeting is "Defending Secular Humanism". The feature is a video recording of an address that Paul Kurtz, founder and chairman of the Council for Secular Humanism, gave to the students at the University of Minnesota. He expounds on four key points of Secular Humanism: 1) free inquiry methodology; 2) Science as the best attempt of getting at reality, 3) secular humanism as an ethical doctrine open to change in response to human needs; and 4)secular humanism as a social policy that promotes world cohesiveness. The video is a half hour in length followed by small group discussions (divided up into approximately equal numbers of participates) to focus on various questions that were addressed. After the small group discussion, the larger group will review the various group findings. Afterwards, those interested will reconvene at a local establishment for lunch and more discussion! Please note that this month’s meeting is the third Saturday of the Month and is meeting an hour later than normal.
