Humanists

This is a group for residents of the Island of Jersey who are Humanists or are interested in Humanism to discuss their views and experiences.

A Humanist lives a moral and ethical lifestyle without the need for believing in a supernatural source of guidance or cause for our existence. Most Humanists would say that they are Atheists or, perhaps, Agnostics. They would also be likely to follow the Secularist aim of wanting to keep religion out of politics, education and other public aspects of life.
