COUNT Discussion Meeting: Humanism vs. Athesim

This week we will be discussing the differences or similarities between Humanism and Atheism. What is the difference between the two? Can non-theists be one or the other or both? What do you define yourself? Why?

Humanism : 1-A variety of ethical theory and practice that emphasizes reason, scientific inquiry, and human fulfillment in the natural world and often rejects the importance of belief in God. 2-The denial of any power or moral value superior to that of humanity; the rejection of religion in favor of a belief in the advancement of humanity by its own efforts. (dictionary.com)

Atheism: 1-The doctrine or belief that there is no God. 2-Disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings. (dictionary.com)

Atheist, agnostics, other non-theists, and atheist-friendly people are welcome to join us.

Discussion Meeting Agenda:

• 6:30: Introductions/Get Settled

• 7:00: Welcome, Projects Status/Ideas

• 7:10: Discussion Topic

FYI, dinner & drinks are available at our meet-ups but you don't have to order dinner or drink to attend.

    I will be attending an all-day "Historical Columbus Underground Railroad Tour" today and hope to have the energy to meet with COUNT this evening. The "Historical Columbus Underground Railroad Tour" will be visiting three historic Columbus sites [that have history related to the Underground Railroad]; we will be eating lunch at the Worthington Inn.
