West London Humanists and Secularists is a local group in the West
London area that is a partner group of the British Humanist Association
and affiliated to the National Secular Society. We discuss social,
political, religious, philosophical, scientific, artistic and other
issues, and regularly invite speakers who are experts in their fields.
You don't need to be a
to join in. We welcome atheists, agnostics, rationalists, skeptics, freethinkers and like-minded people to meet and exchange ideas.
We normally meet twice a month: on first Tuesdays for a get-together in the pub; on third Thursdays to listen to
(and discuss) talks and presentations.
Our next events are on Thursday 21st November, at the Meeting
House. From 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. we will be holding a Humanist Open Door Day as part of
Inter Faith Week 2013. This is an opportunity for people, who may have
no intention of joining our group, to come and meet us and learn something about Humanism.
Later, at 7:30 p.m. we will run a Humanist Apologetics Workshop. Under what circumstances might humanists
feel called upon to defend their beliefs? What are the best ways to go about it? In a workshop led by our
secretary Daljeet, we will be trying to answer these questions. Assisted by Matthew Groizard and Daniel Veasey, he will
illustrate, with videos of debates, how it can go right and how it can go wrong.
Time, location, and more detail on our meetings and programme of talks, can be found on the Meetings page.
If you feel
- you do not need a God to give your life purpose
- belief should be based on evidence
- morality should come from humanity not authority
...then perhaps you should join us.
