The British Humanist Association

The British Humanist Association is the UK's leading organisation for people concerned with ethics and society, free from religious and supernatural dogma. It represents, supports and serves humanists in the United Kingdom and is a registered charity with more than fifty affiliated local groups.

Humanism is a positive and ethical way forward for individuals, families, communities and the world, without recourse to a God or other supernatural beliefs. Now, at the end of the twentieth century, a growing number of people in Britain and around the world are turning to Humanism as the practical and rational outlook on life.

Humanism is an approach to life based on reason and our common humanity, recognising that moral values are properly founded on human nature and experience alone.

The Talk.Origins Archive

The Talk.Origins Archive

Welcome to talk.origins
This welcome FAQ is posted to talk.origins each month. It presents hints and guidelines that talk.origins participants should follow if they want their stay in the newsgroup to be productive.
The talk.origins Jargon File
Do you feel lost when you read talk.origins? Are people using strange terms you've never heard before? Do you wonder what a CWACK or TAE is? Then read this article.
About the topics discussed in talk.origins...
The Book of Genesis (KJV)
The ultimate source for creationist materials and methods. To understand where the young earth creationist is coming from, one must attempt to read this book as literally as possible.
Introduction to Evolutionary Biology
This essay is a must-read for anyone who wants to participate in talk.origins. It lays out the land for evolutionists and creationists alike, presenting the ideas behind and the evidence for biological evolution.
What is Evolution?
All too often creationists spend their time arguing with a straw-man caricature of evolution. This brief essay presents a definition of evolution that is acceptable to evolutionists.
Five Major Misconceptions about Evolution
One big reason creationist arguments against evolution are so effective is that major misconceptions about the topic abound. This article clears up five of the most important misconceptions.
God and Evolution: Can you accept both?
Are Christianity and evolution compatible? This article makes the case for theistic evolution and shows that one does not have to choose between Christianity and evolution.
Evolution is a Fact and a Theory
Biologists consider evolution to be a fact in much the same way that physicists do so for gravity. However, the mechanisms of evolution are less well understood, and it is these mechanisms that are described by several theories of evolution.
Evolution and Philosophy: An Introduction
Critics of evolutionary theory very often misunderstand the philosophical issues of the speciality known as the philosophy of science. This essay seeks to summarise some of the more important recent developments, provide a reading list, and to show that evolution is no worse off philosophically than any other science would be, and that the usual arguments against evolution from a philosophical approach fail.
The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, Evolution, and Probability
The creationist belief that evolution violates the laws of thermodynamics is based on a misunderstanding of both evolution and thermodynamics.
Fossil Hominids
Much of human evolution is well documented by the fossil record. This set of articles covers the fossil evidence for such human ancestors as Australopithecus afarensis, Homo habilis and Homo erectus. Creationist arguments about these fossils are also confronted.
Transitional Vertebrate Fossils
It is impossible to to debate creationists without hearing them claim that there are no transitional forms in the fossil record. This essay puts the lie to that claim by listing and briefly describing a large number of transitional fossils among the vertebrates.
This set of articles describes almost everything one could ever want to know about the reptilian/avian intermediary, Archaeopteryx. All known fossil specimens are described, claims about Archae's possible forgery are assessed, and creationist arguments against the fossil's transitional status are dissected.
Observed Instances of Speciation
Not only does this article examine in detail a number of observed speciation events, but it also discusses the meaning of the word "species."
The Age of the Earth: How do we know it?
The earth is accepted by scientists to be around 4.5 billion years old. But how do they know the earth is this old? Some of the lines of evidence for an ancient earth are presented.
Geological Time Scale
Few discussions in geology or evolution can occur without reference to geologic time. In this article, the standard time scale used by geologists is depicted and described. See also Niel Brandt's Evolutionary and Geological Timelines.
Problems with a Global Flood
This article presents a list of questions that the story of Noah's Ark and a global flood leave unanswered and probably unanswerable, such as: How did all the fish survive? and, When did granite batholiths form?
The Abiogenesis Interim FAQ
This interim FAQ takes a look at some of the arguments for and against abiogenesis (the generation of living from lifeless matter).
Frequently Asked But Never Answered Questions (FABNAQ)
There are a number of questions that creationists never seem to want to answer. (That doesn't stop the evolutionists from asking them, though.)
Refutations of Creationist Arguments: The Meritt FAQs
The Meritt FAQ files are perhaps the first comprehensive look at creationist arguments to be posted in talk.origins. Some entries in this set of FAQs are extremely short and acerbic in tone, while others are more comprehensive.
Creationist FAQs...
The talk.origins FAQ (Creation) [offsite]
This FAQ by Jeffrey Cox presents a creationist's view of the creation/evolution controversy. While it is written by an old-earth creationist, it is also sympathetic to the young-earth creationist position.
The Creation Science FAQ [offsite]
This FAQ presents another creationist interpretation of the evidence. Written by a young-earth creationist, nearly all of its conclusions differ significantly from those reached by mainstream science.
Further Reading...
A Keyword-Indexed Origins Bibliography
This huge bibliography (15044 entries) of origins-related material is categorized and indexed by keyword. Check here if you need to find a reference to anything origins-related.
Book Recommendations for the Creationism/Evolution Debate
A number of books relevant to the creation/evolution debate are briefly reviewed in this article.
Creationism/Evolution Organizations and Periodicals
Eight organizations relevant to the creation/evolution debate are overviewed here. Included are brief reviews and membership/subscription information for the periodicals published by each organization.
The Origin of Species
Read the book that started it all. The full text of the book is online.

The Journal of Consciousness Studies

Journal of Consciousness StudiesJournal of Consciousness Studies - How does the mind relate to the brain? Can computers ever be conscious? What do we mean by subjectivity and the self? These questions are being keenly debated in fields as diverse as cognitive science, neurophysiology and philosophy. The Journal of Consciousness Studies is a peer-reviewed journal which examines these issues in plain English. "Do we need this journal? . . . Yes, we do: there is no other journal quite like it, and one day we shall, I think, look back to its appearance as a defining moment . . . and at the price, it's a snip!" Jeffrey Gray, Nature



JCS is a traditional printed publication -- most of our subscribers like to read every article and we pride ourselves in the quality of our editing, printing and binding. Besides, at only $45 for six issues, "at the price, it's a snip!". However we have a thriving email discussion group, jcs-online which is archived here and have included the full text of a representative sample of refereed articles from JCS itself:
