What is Humanism?

Humanism is a rational philosophy informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion.

Affirming the dignity of each human being, it supports the maximization of individual liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility.

It advocates the extension of participatory democracy and the expansion of the open society, standing for human rights and social justice.

Free of supernaturalism, it recognizes human beings as a part of nature and holds that values--be they religious, ethical, social, or political--have their source in human experience and culture. 

Humanism thus derives the goals of life from human need and interest rather than from theological or ideological abstractions, and asserts that humanity must take responsibility for its own destiny.
-- The American Humanist Association

About Movie Night: We view and then discuss independent films and documentaries concerning the issues of  Humanistic interest. Topics such as human evolution, the occupation of Iraq, the media, religion and other world and political events. There will be occasions when we have the producers of some of these films available to answer questions via conference call.   
When: First Saturday of each month at 7pm
