Event 404

Jim Al-Khalili

The BHA Lecture

Venue: Llwyfan Cymru – Wales Stage

Humanism and the Tolerant Face of New Atheism

As President of the British Humanist Association since the beginning of last year, Al-Khalili has brought his own brand of scientific rationalism to the role. He talks about how he sees the humanist movement evolving in modern-day Britain and how it is now OK to state openly in polite conversation that one is an atheist. He will highlight some of the BHA’s recent activities (both the successes and the ongoing campaigns), and add a personal perspective on how his own humanist and rationalist views have been shaped by science and his upbringing in a mixed-religion – but tolerant – family atmosphere in Iraq in the ’60s and ’70s.
