Events

British Columbia is one of Canada's least religious provinces. The BC Humanist Association is committed to building Humanist communities for those who share our values in cities and towns across the province. Together with our local affiliate communities, we host regular meetings across BC.

Our affiliation program is set out in our Local Groups Policy. Groups who affiliate with us receive support to help connect with Humanists and atheists in their area and become part of a network of non-religious people across the province. Apply to create a local group or to affiliate your existing group.

Attendees at events are expected to adhere to our Code of Conduct.

    Vancouver Book Club

    The reading and discussion of The Evolution of God will be in two parts.

    Part 1: (Aug 4 2020) Pages: Introduction to Chapter Nine: Logos: The Devine Algorithm

    Part 2: (Sep 1 2020) Pages: III: The Invention of Christianity to Chapter Twenty: Well, Aren't We Special?

    The Evolution of God

    by Robert Wright

    Synopsis

    In this sweeping narrative that takes us from the Stone Age to the Information Age, Robert Wright unveils an astonishing discovery: there is a hidden pattern that the great monotheistic faiths have followed as they have evolved. Through the prisms of archaeology, theology, and evolutionary psychology, Wright's findings overturn basic assumptions about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and are sure to cause controversy. He explains why spirituality has a role today, and why science, contrary to conventional wisdom, affirms the validity of the religious quest. And this previously unrecognized evolutionary logic points not toward continued religious extremism, but future harmony.

    Nearly a decade in the making, The Evolution of God is a breathtaking re-examination of the past, and a visionary look forward.

    Please suggest books for upcoming months and invite anyone who may be interested.

    Most books are available at the Vancouver Public Library or local book stores or through the BC Humanist Association.

     

    For invitation to Bookclub Online, please contact Dan Hanna (dan_hanna@telus.net).
