Ten Guidelines of Humanism

  1. Treat others as you would reasonably want and expect to be treated by others.
  2. Never bear false witness to the young and credulous.
  3. Do not pass on traditional myths, manipulations and superstitions as truth.
  4. Never imply to the young and naive that you know what you do not know.
  5. Recognize that we are all part of nature, the result of unguided evolutionary change.
  6. Understand our obligations to the sustainment and integrity of all life.
  7. Admit that in nature there aren't any mysteries, just temporary ignorance of natural facts.
  8. Do not be afraid of the truth learned in gentle, consistent and rational discipline.
  9. Enjoy helping the young to excel beyond their ancestors as they stand on your reliable shoulders.
  10. When you offer your shoulders, be very careful not to face backwards towards the darkness of the superstitious past, but forward to the light of the future.

DAH's 2012 Annual Meeting was held Sunday, January 29, at the Kirkwood Highway Public Library. A motion was approved to amend the Bylaws, Article III (Governance), Sec. 4 (Terms of Service), to limit Directors to no more than three (3) full, consecutive terms, effective immediately. Then, Alan Palmer, James Presley and Glen Schmiesing were reelected to the DAH Board.

We have an on-going series of informal discussions, our Freethinkers Forum, on the Third Saturday of each month at 5:00 pm back again at Dead Presidents Bar + Restaurant, 618 N Union St., Wilmington, DE 19805. This meetup is for people to freely discuss anything they would like..

Our lecture/discussion series co-sponsored by Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark (UUFN) and the Delaware Association for Humanism (DAH) is suspended until further notice.

This series offers a philosophical examination of a wide range of questions in ethics and value theory, with an accent on individual choices. The program will allow an hour for discussion with drinks and snacks provided. Donations are welcomed to help defray expenses.
