 The topic of this month’s AAHS Freethinker Forum:

AAHS (Agnostics, Atheists, Humanists & Secularists) Freethinker Forum: Democracy, Disinformation, and the Pro-Truth Pledge

In this age of “post-truth” politics with threats to the democratic process that include social media echo chambers, disinformation and election hacking, what can we do? Among other things, we can support public projects like the “Pro-Truth Pledge,” an initiative that promotes truth-seeking and critical thinking in public discourse. With endorsements from thousands of individuals and hundreds of leaders and organizations so far, The Pro-Truth Pledge challenges politicians and citizens alike to honor facts and civility in what they say, endorse, and share online. Is there evidence that it actually works? All are welcome to join the the discussion!

AAHS (Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists & Secularists/Skeptics) is a group that meets monthly (4th Sundays) for discussion and fellowship at the Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Santa Monica. All are welcome!
 
The term Humanism (sometimes known as secular humanism, modern humanism or scientific humanism) was first used as a moniker for a non-theistic, compassionate philosophy or worldview by Rev. John Dietrich of the First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis in 1916, over 100 years ago! The early Unitarian Humanists wrote the original "Humanism and its Aspirations" manifesto and co-founded the American Humanist Association, helping to begin an international movement. 
 
"The time has come for widespread recognition of the radical changes in religious beliefs throughout the modern world. The time is past for mere revision of traditional attitudes. Science and economic change have disrupted the old beliefs. Religions the world over are under the necessity of coming to terms with new conditions created by a vastly increased knowledge and experience. In every field of human activity, the vital movement is now in the direction of a candid and explicit humanism."
Humanist Manifesto 1, 1933
