Darwin and Doubt
Charles Darwin’s ideas on evolution and natural selection have had a profound effect on western civilization—they also deeply affected his own life. His willingness to question traditional religious ideas brought him not only a sense of increased understanding and wonder, but also interpersonal conflict and anxiety. Please join us for a viewing of the documentary film Questioning Darwin followed by discussion on the challenges that arise at the intersection of science, religion, and doubt.
Humanism with Heart is a discussion and service group that is guided by the principles of Humanism, a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, encourages us to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that are guided by reason, inspired by compassion, and informed by experience. Humanism and Unitarian Universalism (UU) share a long history, with several UU ministers having helped write the three iterations of the Humanist Manifesto. Come and explore with others the full diversity of today’s modern Humanism, which encompasses religious, secular, and spiritual perspectives.
Meetings are held the third Thursday of each month at 7 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Winston-Salem at 4055 Robinhood Drive. This group is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Winston-Salem, is free to attend, and is open to the public.
