Hastings Humanists and Skeptics?

First a reminder that our next meeting on Thursday 13 June is an "Any Questions" style debate.

One of the panellists will be Simon Clare of the South East Skeptics Society who are organising a Skeptics Road Show throughout Kent and now extending to Hastings on 26 September. He is also known as the Atheist Street Preacher! It is proposed by our Secretary, George Jelliss, that Hastings Humanists get together with SESS to organise regular Skeptics in the Pub style meetings, perhaps in alternate months with specifically Humanist meetings. This will need to be discussed among our members, and put to a motion at the AGM in November, but it would probably be better to combine forces rather than have a competing Hastings Skeptics organisation. Input from members on these developments would be appreciated.

    A very good evening with lots of different questions and points of view. A good format and I hope that, at least once a year, we do this again.

  2. I agree, the format worked well, and we certainly propose to use it again. The speakers on the panel were a well-chosen varied group too. I don't think I'd want to be on it though, since I would be answering "I don't know" to most questions!

  3. Philosophy Forum 2013 established since 13/02/2013 and have completed 24 weeks of regular meetings at Isabel Blackman Centre in Hastings.
