In this blog you'll find details of our past events, as well as other information about what Plymouth Humanists get up to

September's Book Club - Pandaemonium

September’s book club discussed Christopher Brookmyre’s novel ‘Pandaemonium’ an investigation into the boundaries between science and religion, combined with a tribute to the golden age of slasher movies in the 80’s.  Christopher very generously give us a little of his time over Skype to discuss his inspiration for the book, and tell us about his hopes for having it turned into a movie.

June’s talk: How Secular Is Britain?

We’ve been a supporter of the National Secular Society almost since we started as a group, but we’ve never had a talk from them.  So, it was with great pleasure we welcomed Keith Porteous Wood, Executive Director of the NSS, as our guest speaker for June.

Early Summer activities

I’ve again been a bit lazy with the blogging, but our events continue.  We’ve had two enjoyable conservation walks at Warleigh Point, finding gratifyingly little litter to pick up. Unfortunately May’s talk had to be cancelled at the last minute, but we substituted a pleasant social evening instead. .June 4th saw a joint meeting in Liskeard with both Cornwall and Exeter Humanists.  There was some stimulating conversation, as well as a discussion about campaigns and activities we could co-operate on. 

April's talk: Amish to Atheist

 

How do you get from committed Christian to president of Exeter University’s Humanist Society in five years?

Political Activism and the Women's Equality Party

At a time when progress towards a more tolerant and open world seems to have gone into reverse, Bea Gare of the women's equality party in Exeter came to talk to us the importance of continuing to fight for justice and equality.
