On 20 August 2022, Eru Hiko-Tahuri launched his book Maori Boy Atheist at Rationalist House, Auckland. It has been translated into Maori and French, with distribution throughout the Pacific Islands. At the launch, NZARH President Hema Paterson introduced Eru, giving a background to the publication of Eru’s book. Eru will talk to us about his book, and there will be copies of Maori Boy Atheist available to purchase at this meeting. The launch of Maori Boy Atheist at Rationalist House may be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UI_w5Tjj5Xg
If you are interested in joining the Humanist NZ committee and supporting the work of humanism in New Zealand please contact our President Tim Wright at [masked] Now that we are familiar with Zoom, a useful consequence of the Covid Lockdown experience is that committee members can join us from other places in New Zealand.
If you can’t make it in person, feel free to join us via the Zoom link
All interested people are welcome, Society members and members of the public-bring a friend
This is a regular meeting for people who want to be involved in skeptical activism. We spend an evening in a pub, working collaboratively on a skeptical subject of local (New Zealand) concern.
The kinds of projects envisioned for these evenings include filing complaints with the ASA, editing Wikipedia to add a skeptical viewpoint to articles that are not presently fairly balanced and creating small websites to counter unscientific claims made by organisations such as FFNZ and the IAS.
Our complaints with the ASA, and like places, are related mainly to Healthcare claims, but we are always willing to help with other topics.
The evening is technology-based; Please bring a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
We hope to be doing a lot of internet-based activity and will be connecting to the pub's WiFi network.
Get a free drink for your first complaint made!
Want to chat with interesting people who share your skeptical worldview?
As well as our local in-person meetups around the country, we're running a national virtual meetup every month. Whether you're an in-person regular, a skeptic from from a place that doesn't have regular meetings, or even living abroad, we'd love to have you join us.
Bring along a beer if you have any, along with any topics you want to talk about, and we'll see you on the interwebs.
