Plymouth Humanists to hold biggest ever event at University
The Plymouth Humanist community is celebrating a growth in interest and membership with their biggest event to date, hosting a talk by TV-Presenter and Lecturer at Plymouth University, Professor Iain Stewart.
The topic Professor Stewart will be discussing is ‘Can God Save the Planet’. More than 130 people already have bought tickets and will be sitting in the Jill Craigie Cinema at Plymouth University when the talk begins at 7.30pm on Tuesday evening.
According to the Plymouth Humanists, recent months has seen a growing interest in the Humanist movement throughout Plymouth. The group holds talks each month with an increasingly large regular attendance; it now has social events every month, and is looking to branch out into other areas in the next six months.
This year will also see new ‘satellite’ groups starting up in Saltash, Wembury and Marjon with others in the pipeline.

Plymouth Humanists attribute their success to a number of factors including: hard-working members, an increasing awareness of what Humanism is and a growing interest in ethics, science and rationalism in Plymouth.
Iain Stewart is Professor of Geoscience Communication at Plymouth University, and a television and radio presenter. He has appeared on and presented programs such as: Earth: The Power of the Planet, Journeys From the Centre of the Earth, How Earth Made Us, BBC Horizon, Making Scotland's Landscape, How to Grow a Planet and Volcano Live.
Plymouth Humanists define Humanists as people who: Trust to the scientific method when it comes to understanding how the universe works and that rejects the idea of the supernatural (and is therefore an atheist or agnostic).
Make their ethical decisions based on reason, empathy, and a concern for human beings and other sentient animals.
Believe that, in the absence of an afterlife and any discernible purpose to the universe, human beings can act to give their own lives meaning by seeking happiness in this life and helping others to do the same.
