A menacing darkness looms over us. The political climate is both repressive and chaotic.

All that we cherish, all that we have struggled for is being precipitously undone, leaving those who cherish freedom and democracy in fear and maybe despair. 

But as humanists I think we agree that the future is not predetermined. The future is always an open future, and political currents that flow in one direction can change their course and move in another.

In this time of darkness, I recall that out of the evil of European fascism and the unprecedented violence of the Second World War, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was proclaimed, and  we experienced a period of tremendous growth and social progress.

Perpetual resistance is in order. Moreover for progressives, change may not be the requirement of the moment, but rather a firm commitment to our basic norms  -- rights, freedom, dissent -- and all things needed to safeguard a society which is decent and worth having.

March Theme: How Science Brings Light to Ethics

Ethical Explorers will look at how ethical exploration is enhanced by the scentific method, learning how knowledge benefits from the collaboration of diverse minds.

Join us as we:

-Probe the quest for truth as represented by science.
-Sort out the powers of opinion and fact, hypothesis and conclusion
-Create brain-hats and think deeply about the sceince of the past, present and future.
-Stand up together as a community in support of scientific inquiry, knowledge, and their value in our Ethical growth.
