NJHN Darwin Day Party @ Monroe Township Library
Feb 12 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

We’re excited to announce our first library event in nearly 3 years! Please join us for a Darwin Day Party as we celebrate the life and work of Charles Darwin (b. February 12, 1809), who published his theory of evolution by natural selection in On the Origin of Species in 1859.

International Darwin Day is now celebrated around the world, by state and local governments, by the United Nations and its members, with a mission to inspire people throughout the globe to reflect and act on the principles of intellectual bravery, perpetual curiosity, scientific thinking, and hunger for truth as embodied by Charles Darwin.

We’ll play some Darwin/evolution trivia/games (with prizes), with refreshments and a Darwin Day CAKE. Bring your favorite beverage.

NJHN Exploring Humanism Course
Mar 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

What are the implications of embracing a philosophy or life stance in this ever changing and challenging world? How can Humanism inform our choices and guide our interactions with others? These are some of the questions we’re discussing in our new online group called “Exploring Humanism.”

We meet once a month, on the 1st Sunday, to share our thoughts on the basic tenets of Humanism, along with Humanistic approaches to an array of social issues and problems. We’re using as our guide the basic online studies program of the American Humanist Association Center for Education and will focus on one of the courses in the program each month.
