UU Humanists & Freethinkers

 

UU Humanist Forum

The forum explores human growth and the transcendent without supernaturalism. Our discussion topics include issues relating to morality and ethics, human development, evolution, the nature of the universe, love, the capacities of the brain, free will, the latest scientific research and discoveries.  We include humanists, agnostics, atheists, freethinkers, religious naturalists, interested theists, and anyone who wishes to attend. The Humanist forum meets at 12:45 p.m. in Room 208.

The forum meets at 11:45 a.m. during the summer one-service period, late June and July.

On the Sundays when the Humanist Forum does not meet, the UU Freethinkers meet at 12:45 p.m. (11:45 a.m. from late June through July)  This group seeks conversations that foster an understanding of diverse views.  It is the idea, not the messenger, which is explored in discussion.  The UU Freethinkers hope to learn how others form their opinions and to test these opinions with individual experiences and learning.
