[Stanford Humanists]

Wecome to the WWW page of the Stanford Humanists!

Humanism is a secular philosophy that values people, emphasizes reason and focuses on the world in which we live.

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),
