A Brief History of Concord Area Humanists (CAH)

Greetings!  Two weeks ago, CAH had its last event of the season.  We will pick up again on October 3, in Parish Hall, 7 pm, when David Ropeik will present “Cognitive Limits on Human Reason”.  This was scheduled for February, but was postponed because of heavy snow. We hope the October weather will be better.  Do enjoy the intervening Summer and come back eager for the new series we are planning for the Fall, starting with David.

Skeptical Science

It is hard to even keep track of all the confusing myths on global warming that circulate, let alone respond and point out errors. Result is that perpetrators of this fake news get away with misleading the public.

How many of us are exposed, even among friends and relatives, to information we know is wrong, but are not able to respond because we have not studied the problem deeply enough?

Recently a friend alerted me to a reference that helps n global warming. I highly recommend the on-line reference: Skeptical Science; Read more about Skeptical Science »

Dr Ellen Moyer's talk to CAH on November 3, 2017

A few weeks ago, Dr Ellen Moyer came to our CAH group and gave us an excellent talk based on her book: “Our Earth, Our Species, Our Selves: How to Thrive While Creating a Sustainable World”.  I purchased a copy, and have since enjoyed reading it.  I was inspired by this book, in which she described so many relevant topics.  Each topic was thoroughly referenced.

Lifelong Learning for Free Using the Internet

On January 6, 2016, I gave a talk for the Concord Area Humanists titled "Lifelong Learning (for Free) Using the Internet", and I promised to publish links to the resources mentioned in the talk and a link to the slides. (Unfortunately, I did not arrange to have the talk videotaped.) I hope you found the topic interesting and find some of these resources valuable as you indulge your own intellectual curiosity.

Why Are UU Humanists Overlooked?

Yesterday, I wrote a blog post about my reaction to Molly Worthen's NY Times article, "Wanted: A Theology of Atheism" for the UU Humanist Association's blog. It doesn't address her thesis (that I agree with), that the new "atheist churches" need to be aware of their philosophical heritage. (She calls this theology though she mostly talks about moral systems.) Instead, it points out how that the heritage of Humanism in UU congregations isn’t even mentioned and considers why that is. I would love comments from Concord Area Humanists. Read more about Why Are UU Humanists Overlooked? »
