The Humanists of Lake Norman is a local chapter of the American Humanist Association. We strive to bring about a progressive society where being good without a god is an accepted and respected way to live life. We are accomplishing this through our defense of civil liberties and secular governance, by our outreach to the growing number of people without traditional religious faith, and through a continued refinement and advancement of the humanist worldview.
Humanism encompasses a variety of nontheistic views (atheism, agnosticism, rationalism, naturalism, secularism, and so forth) while adding the important element of a comprehensive worldview and set of ethical values – values that are grounded in the philosophy of the Enlightenment, informed by scientific knowledge, and driven by a desire to meet the needs of people in the here and now.
We count humanists and other nontheists as the core of our movement but are always willing to work with friends and allies on issues of common concern. The positions we hold and the actions we take are not simply for our own benefit, but for the betterment of all of society and the world in which we live.
The Humanists of Lake Norman’s next meeting is scheduled for Sunday, Nov 17 at 1 pm. The topic will be “The State of State-Church Separation.” We will view a short video presentation featuring Andrew L. Seidel, Legal Counsel for Freedom from Religion Foundation, speaking about his recent book: The Founding Myth – Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American. A discussion will follow.
The meeting will be held in the Community Room at WDAV, 423 N. Main Street, Davidson, NC. Parking is available in the rear of the bldg – accessed from Jackson Street. Attendees are welcome to brown bag and bring a beverage of choice.
