Visit – Humanist speaker

On Tuesday, we had a visit from John Turner who came to speak to us about the views of Humanists. We found out that the main principles of being a humanist are that they believe the aim of life is to be kind to all around us, to share with others and to ask lots of questions and learn as much as we can. Humanists rely on scientific evidence in their explanation of the universe and all things in it, including human beings. They think we should make the most of the life we have now and John explained that they live their lives by the phrase ‘Think for yourself, Act for everyone’. It was interesting to hear the views of other people and we got the chance to ask questions about anything we didn’t understand. It was nice to hear from someone with views different than our own or a view we hadn’t come across before.
