  • Issue 124 - A basis for morality: The principle of harm-minimisation
    • Abstract: Hotchin, Peter
      Around the middle of the 20th century the UK philosopher Elizabeth Anscombe (1919-2001) had become critical of ethical doctrines that have no reference to the good. She was concerned that the notions of moral duty and obligation had been rendered anchorless because of an attenuation in our understanding of what the good consists in. Bereft of an anchor, ethical doctrines had, in her view, lost contact with human needs and desires. Anscombe's concern was that of someone from a major school of thought known as 'virtue ethics', and her criticism was aimed at another major school of thought, that of 'deontology'.

      Opponents of equal rights for homosexual people, particularly regarding same-sex marriage, predicate their opposition on ignorant misconceptions of human biology, and unsupportable reliance on religious precepts. Let's discuss this matter.

    • Abstract: Morris, Brian
      The dust has not settled on this year's disastrous Census, yet already there are calls to amend the question on Religious Affiliation. While the latest change brought Australia into line with most Western countries - by placing 'No Religion' as first option - elements of the 'not-quite-religious' community feel bitterly aggrieved.

  • Issue 124 - Israel: The promising land
    • Abstract: Modern, Stevie
      March 15, 2016: A 19 year-old American tourist is arrested in Jerusalem. Police authorities had found him asleep in a prohibited cave area, deep under the Muslim quarter of the Old City. A search finds his backpack loaded with rubble dug with a pickaxe, at a site where myth tells of lost religious treasure. The tourist claims no memory of his actions. Israeli media reports the story as a possible case of 'Jerusalem Syndrome' - a religiously themed psychosis. The syndrome affects nearly 100 people each year out of millions of tourists (all denominations) who visit Jerusalem.

  • Issue 125 - 'Humanist community workers': A project for Australian
           humanism
    • Abstract: Storey, Lyndon
      Humanism is an approach to life in its own right: it is not simply the rejection of religion. Nor is it just the continuing on of religiously inspired values without an accompanying belief in God. Humanism relies on exploring human potential, including our potential for such things as compassion, love, and to find a path to a fulfilling and meaningful life. Humanism is an essentially social set of beliefs with its emphasis on common humanity and it can inspire people to positive social action and compassion for others.

      It is an often-heard claim, expressed in newspaper articles, academia, and on-line public forums, that religion is being banished from the public square.

  • Issue 125 - The best country in the world?: India, where the cow is
           the holy mother
    • Abstract: Mall, Sangeeta
      The most popular Indian street food is the pani puri. The snack is a combination of solid and liquid, a watery bomb of sweet, sour and tangy flavours, a complete sensory delight, much like Indian society, though 'delight' might not be the right descriptor at times. Freedom of expression, individual rights, civil liberties, equality before law, all the cornerstones of a democracy, have been given to the Indian people by the founding fathers in the form of a robust Constitution. And yet, most disconcertingly, more often than not, these principles are threatened by the same entity appointed to protect them, the Indian state. So how does one manage this paradox? How does one survive in a context where one is free but also bound, where one's freedoms are guaranteed by the Constitution yet threatened on a daily basis, where the Constitution is secular but the attitude distinctly parochial?

  • Issue 125 - A humanist future is technoprogressive
    • Abstract: Reagan, Lawson
      This article will argue that a Humanist future is a technoprogressive one. It will first give an overview of the emerging third dimension of 21st century politics, that of biopolitics. It will define the broad differences between the transhumanist and bioconservative movements. Then it will turn to the two main ideologically competing strands of the transhumanist movement: that of right wing 'Libertarian Transhumanism' and left wing 'Technoprogressivism' (these terms are explained below).

  • Issue 125 - Sustainable development, are we the lucky country?
    • Abstract: Lowe, Ian
      The late Donald Horne was a truly important Australian intellectual. His 1964 book The Lucky Country caused a sensation and was a runaway bestseller. As the cover of the sixth edition published in 2008 says, 'the book was a wake-up call to an unimaginative nation, an indictment of a country mired in mediocrity and manacled to its past'. The title came from the introduction to the book's final chapter. It described Australia as 'a lucky country run mainly by second-rate people who share its luck'. The phrase 'the lucky country' quickly became part of the language, though its message was often misrepresented by people who had not even read the book, or had not grasped its ironic meaning. While he acknowledged that 1964 Australia was possibly 'the most evenly prosperous society in the world', Horne argued that we were living on other people's ideas and held back by leaders he called 'empty-minded public wafflers'.

      So what is the scientific method, and why do so many people, sometimes including those trained in science, get it so wrong?

      The first thing to understand is that there is no one method in science, no one way of doing things. This is intimately connected with how we reason in general.

      Secular education for all children is a human right.1 Public education must be free, secular and compulsory in all Australian states except Queensland, so it is a legal right in those states (though parents in all jurisdictions can opt their child out of religious instruction). Nevertheless, federal and state governments are funding and assisting religious instruction in public schools, and children are placed in these classes, subjected to religious persuasion and practices, even when parents specify their child is not to attend. Let me tell you about one parent who is challenging these practices.

  • Issue 123 - God as social glue
    • Abstract: Ness, John
      We are now well into the second century since scientific knowledge has advanced such that a belief in a god or gods to explain the universe, life, humans and morality, is entirely unnecessary. It contradicts all evidence and is even patently absurd. Over the last 100 years, most western countries have witnessed a decline in the god belief of around 2-5% per decade from an almost 100% rate in 1900. Nevertheless the belief persists amongst all levels of society although there is some correlation between higher levels of education and a lack of belief in god. There have been various attempts to explain this persistence of belief, ranging from the somewhat discredited discovery of the 'god spot' in the brain through to intergenerational influences, especially mothers on children, to the institutional power of religions and the basic human search for meaning or even religion as opium as Marx unkindly put it.

  • Issue 123 - Using the idea of 'Limits to growth' to interpret present day
           economic life
    • Abstract: Bien, Victor
      Readers here will be familiar with the book 'Limits to Growth' by the Club of Rome in the 1970s. As we know it was written in the same spirit as Thomas Malthus's 'Principle of Population' (6 editions published 1798-1826). Malthus's central thesis warned of the dire consequences of population growth outstripping the supply of food and other resources. This prediction never happened because Malthus had failed to take account of advances in technology. Similarly the dire forecasts by the Club of Rome that key ingredients of the modern economy such as coal, oil and industrial metals would run out never materialised, as technological developments have always kept ahead. So why do I see the idea as still relevant?

Consequently, there was a large campaign around the question, 'What is the person's religion?' The push was on to either change the wording, split the question or to bring the 'no religion' option to the top of the list.

  • Issue 122 - An atheist's meditation: Living in the present
    • Abstract: Anders, Rudi
      When I see a colourful sunset, my mind goes to a spectacular purple sunset I saw near the Mexican border many years ago. That memory stops me from being fully aware of the scene in front of me. No two sunsets are the same and my memory is stopping me from fully appreciating the spectacle before my eyes. Famous and spectacular places don't work for me because expectations and memories get in the way, but when I walk alone in nature (away from waterfalls and views) I find my mind stops chattering and I begin to effortlessly notice the shades of green in the foliage, the patterns in the bark on the trees and the sounds and fragrances. It sometimes feels as if am absorbed by the surroundings. When this happens I don't bother with the names of birds or flowers because even that distracts from direct experience.

Two years later he travelled in North Africa and in 1850, in hitherto unexplored regions of South Africa; and, in 1855, published a very successful book giving an account of his experiences. He was probably inspired by the celebrated travels of his cousin.

Over that time, the way CAHS and organised Humanism in general have operated in Australia has remained more or less the same. Indeed, in the September 1975 issue of the Australian Humanist - just 10 years after the formation of CAHS - Chairman Nick Stenning was lamenting the lack of volunteers at the national level and real communication between state societies; a common complaint that is still to be heard around the traps today.

    • Abstract: Sharpe, Matthew
      Let me begin with words from a different, more optimistic time:

      'For it may be truly affirmed to the honour of these times, and in a virtuous emulation with antiquity, that this great building of the world had never throughlights made in it, till the age of us and our fathers. For although they had knowledge of the antipodes,... yet that might be by demonstration, and not in fact; and if by travel, it requireth the voyage but of half the globe. But to circle the earth, as the heavenly bodies do, was not done nor enterprised till these later times: and therefore these times may justly bear in their word, not only plus ultra, in precedence of the ancient non ultra, ... but likewise imitabile c lum (to imitate the heavens); in respect of the many memorable voyages after the manner of heaven about the globe of the earth. And this proficience in navigation and discoveries may plant also an expectation of the further proficience and augmentation of all [the] sciences; because it may seem they are ordained by God to be coevals, that is, to meet in one age. For so the prophet Daniel speaking of the latter times foretelleth, 'Many shall pass over, and knowledge shall be increased': as if the openness and circumnavigation of the world and the increase of knowledge were appointed to be in the same ages; as we see it is already performed in great part: the learning of these later times not much giving place to the former two periods or returns of learning, the one of the Greeks, the other of the Romans ...'

      On February 12, Humanists and many others around the world will celebrate Charles Darwin's birthday. We do this because his most significant contribution to human knowledge, as set out in On Origin of the Species (1859), is the evidence and arguments for evolution by natural selection. By taking a scientific approach, Darwin (1809-1882) along with many others changed the way humans understand their origins and place in the biosphere. We are not the product of special creation, but rather naturally evolved beings, fully interdependent with the rest of the natural world.

      Artificial intelligence is so widespread now, and so well embedded into our latest technology, that nearly all of us know it as AI. It is virtually impossible to fully catalogue its uses and applications because by now it has reached every corner of human activities. This is the premise on which I based a lecture to the Humanist Society of Victoria (HSV) on October 22, 2015 entitled 'The Artificial Intelligence Debate'. The talk was followed by a spirited discussion at a HSV meeting on November 8 chaired by Dr Jennie Mills, who gave an excellent account of the original talk in the Dec. 2015 Victorian Humanist. This article consists of a series of notes following on from the talk and discussion.

  • Issue 121 - The Vienna circle: Exact thinking in times of tumult
    • Abstract: Stuart, SN

The contributors were animated to regain clarity of collective thought, felt to be lost in the convulsion of the Great War. As its topics were quickly taken up in Prague and Berlin, Cambridge and Harvard, the Vienna Circle came to exert an important, international influence on the intellectual and scientific history of the twentieth century. In particular, its program for separating knowledge from nonsense informed the emerging international Humanist movement.
