What we're about
With the publication of the Humanist Manifesto (http://americanhumanist.org/Humanism/Humanist_Manifesto_I) in 1933, modern Humanism was born. Signers of the manifesto included a number of intellectuals and religious leaders. Most of the latter were Unitarian ministers. The document boldly proclaimed “the time has passed for theism”. In subsequent years, non-theistic Humanism became a dominant influence on the Unitarian Universalism (UU). The UU Humanists Association (http://www.huumanists.org) is dedicated to keeping Humanist ideals strong within the denomination and insuring those who identify as non-believers, atheists, agnostics, and humanists find a welcoming home within Unitarian Universalism. The Humanists and Non-Theists of the UU Society of San Francisco, is a local San Francisco group that sponsors speakers, discussions, potlucks, parties and an annual Darwin Day event featuring a scientific lecture and a luncheon. We invite you to check out some of our activities whether you are a Unitarian Universalist or would like to learn more about UU Humanism.
