What is Humanism?
Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
APRIL SOCIAL GATHERING
April 19, 7:00 p.m.
Shanahan’s Creole Restaurant, 7353 Madison St., Forest Park
Help us welcome spring (hopefully) with a social evening focused on Earth Day. Humanists care about the environment. Join us to wine, dine, converse, maybe save the planet. If you haven’t been to one of our events, this low-key and friendly gathering is a great way to meet and get to know us. See you there!
A DAY IN OUR VILLAGE COMMUNITY FAIR
Sunday, June 3rd
Scoville Park in Oak Park
This will be our 5th year participating in Oak Park’s annual outdoor fair, featuring various community organizations, food, music, and more. Stop by our booth for humanist information and freebies, a free science-themed t-shirt raffle, and games, treats, and coloring pages for the kids. We’ll be looking for you.
ALSO COMING UP:
SPEAKER SERIES: WILLIAM A. ZINGRONE, PhD.
Ten humanists met Bill Zingrone, PhD. Lecturer in Developmental Psychology, secular activist, and Illinois chairman of the Secular Coalition for America. Dr. Zingrone discussed and signed his book, The Arrogance of Religious Belief, “a provocative, challenging and irreverent expose of the obnoxious arrogance inherent in all religious thinking.” The author’s research includes consciousness and cognitive evolution.
5th ANNUAL DARWIN DAY CELEBRATION
Twenty humanists gathered on Darwin's birthday for food and fun at our 5th Darwin Birthday Bash. We enjoyed pop and appetizers, games (including the ever popular "creationist bingo") and prizes, evolution-themed activities, birthday cake and a 50/50 raffle.
