Humans hold an amazing array of odd and unwarranted beliefs.  While some fall for accounts of alien abductions, miraculous images on grilled cheese sandwiches, or young-earth creationism, others adopt an exaggerated skepticism that denies the earth is spherical or that the holocaust happened.  What makes pseudoscience and superstition flourish?  How can we avoid falling for unjustified beliefs ourselves?  Come join us for a video clip from Michael Shermer and discussion.

Humanism with Heart is a discussion and service group that is guided by the principles of Humanism, a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, encourages us to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that are guided by reason, inspired by compassion, and informed by experience. Humanism and Unitarian Universalism (UU) share a long history, with several UU ministers having helped write the three iterations of the Humanist Manifesto. Come and explore with others the full diversity of today’s modern Humanism, which encompasses religious, secular, and spiritual perspectives.
 
Meetings are held the first and third Thursdays of each month at 7 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Winston-Salem at 4055 Robinhood Drive. This group is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Winston-Salem, is free to attend, and is open to the public. Please contact humanism@uufws.org for more information or to be added to our Email list.
