Wecome to the WWW page of the Stanford Humanists!
Having said that, Humanism is really far more dynamic! Humanism means a commitment to human solutions for human problems, to people's lives, families and communities. It's camaraderie, fellowship, reason and passion.
There is an upcoming Humanist event (Darwin Day) in the Bay Area:
2001 Evolution vs. Creationism: The Anatomy of a Controversy or Why People Have a Hard Time Accepting Darwin Dr. Michael Shermer, founding publisher of Skeptic Magazine, director of the Skeptics Society, author of Why People Believe Weird Things, How We Believe, The Borderlands of Science, and Denying History, host of Skeptics Caltech Lecture Series, co-producer and co-host of the TV Series Exploring the Unknown, monthly columnist for Scientific American, and one of the world's foremost experts on the evolution-creationism controversy, presents both the history and science behind the debate, and shows that there is, in fact, no debate at all. Dr. Shermer will review in detail the history of creationism from Scopes to Kansas, present their best arguments against evolution and the rebuttals to these arguments, and explain the latest evolutionary mutation of creationism, "intelligent design". Sunday, February 11, 7:00 p.m. Palo Alto YMCA, 4161 Alma St. Tickets available at Kepler's Books, Printers Inc. (Mtn. View or Palo Alto), or at the door.
