    Our first Darwin Lecture

    Dawinian Theory: Medicine's Neglected Basic Science

    Evolution has shaped the human bodyand mind, yet has paid scant attention to this fact. Dr Riadh Ahbed argues that

    evolutionary science can provide insights into disfunction and disorder that cannot be otherwise attained.

    Dr Ahbed is a retired NHS psychiatrist and senior clinical lecturer (University of Sheffield) and a former medical director. He is currently a medical member

    of the mental health tribunals in England. He has had a long standing interest in the application of Darwinian theory to psychiatry and has published a number

    of of evolutionary-based theories regarding eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder and schizophenics. He is currently the chair of the Evolutionary

    Psychiatry Special Interest Group of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and Secretary of the Section of Evolutionary Psychiatry at the World Psychiatric Association.

Campaigning locally for a Secular Britain.

Who we are and what we believe:

We are a group of people based in and around the Nottingham area who support the idea of a secular society, in which people of all religions, and none, should be treated equally.

We support the Charter of the National Secular Society and meet regularly to discuss secular issues; listen to guest speakers; organise campaigns, have debates and the occasional social evening.

Secularism Protects:

We are not anti-religion. We oppose discrimination against religions and discrimination by religions equally but we believe that religion is a private matter for individuals and that the privileged position of religious organisations and the self-interest of religious leaders is one that should be challenged.
