HAT Forum
Sat May 21st 2016
11 a.m. To 1 pm
519 Church Street Room 303
Topic: “Building Bridges? Humanism and Religion"
Proposer: Richard Dowsett

- Do you engage personally with religious people about faith issues, and if so how?

- How engaged do think the Humanist movement should be with organized religions?


- When, if ever, is it appropriate to ridicule religious beliefs?


- What religious practices or emotions should Humanism seek to replicate in a non-theistic context?


- One of Humanism's objectives is to foster human flourishing. Would it pose a dilemma for Humanists if it could 
be scientifically proven that people are happier and healthier if they have religious beliefs?
