Hull and East Riding Humanist Group

A social group for humanists, atheists, secularists, sceptics and agnostics

15/10/2012
7:30 pmto9:00 pm

The next meeting of the HERHG will be at 7.30pm on Monday 15th Octoberber 2012 in the back room of The Tiger Inn, Lairgate, Beverley, East Yorkshire, HU17 8JG. Eric Kaufmann is a Professor of Politics at Birkbeck College, University of London and his 2010 book “Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth” argues that the more religious people are, the more children they have and as a consequence, the cumulative effect of religious fertility will be to reverse the secularisation process in the West. Not only will the religious eventually triumph over the non-religious, but it is those who are the most extreme in their beliefs who have the largest families. John Hawkins will be leading the discussion on this trend in society which worries many secularists. All welcome.
