From: Nathan C.
Sent on: Friday, May 2, 2008 11:56 AM
Announcing a new meeting for Humanists of Minnesota!

What: Principles of Humanism

When: Saturday, May 24, 10:00 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Who should come: What is humanism? Is there a single 'official' definition? What do you think? Come find out and add to the discussion!

Meeting Description: We will investigate?and?uncover?the principles behind Humanism.?With the aid of others such as Fred Edwords of the American Humanist Association (on DVD),?we will?investigate a prescriptive recommendation about how to use the term?Humanism.?This will include four main characteristics:? (1) a method of inquiry;?(2) a cosmic world view;?(3) a con- crete set of ethical recommendations for each individual's life stance; and (4) a main political stance, that is, separation of church and state.
?
Following the ?disrobing? of the term Humanism, the group will split up into groups of near equal number?and discuss the above points of what it means to be a Humanist.?

Following the discussion we will evaluate this year's topics and suggest topics for next year's meetings. Come with your ideas!
