Are you good without a god? Hey, so are we!

We all benefit from a supportive community for friends, charity, and fostering a better understanding of secular values with our neighbors. Atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, humanists, skeptics, non-religious, lost tourists, and the generally confused are all welcome to join us!

It is often claimed that atheists are rare when in fact nearly 20% of our nation's population do not believe in a higher power. Still, atheists can feel isolated because the religious community is so organized and outspoken on issues. Building and participating in a community is the first step toward being heard.

Plus - the conversation is great!

The Arkansas Society of Freethinkers is an organization of secular individuals whose goals are to:

  • Build a supportive and active community.
  • Promote public acceptance of nonbelievers.
  • Defend science education and the separation of church and state.


We encourage everyone to suggest events and activities. In addition to various volunteer, social, and public events, our regular events are:

  • Monthly Lecture Series
  • 1st Tuesday dinner and drinks
  • New member welcome potluck
  • "Unholy Rollers" Arkansas River Trail bike rides
  • Book Club
  • Flying Saucer Pint Night
  • The "Freespeakers" Toastmasters chapter
  • Human Light mid-winter celebration
  • Winter Solstice holiday display at the Arkansas State Capitol
  • Annual "Darwin Day" conference
  • Annual "Reason in the Rock" conference
  • Public Events that we regularly support and attend
    • Skeptics in the Pub
    • Science Cafe (The Arkansas Society of Freethinkers is one of several co-sponsors)
    • Socrates Cafe (Sponsored and presented by the Central Arkansas Library System, and promoted by the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers)


We are a volunteer organization and most of our events are free for the public to attend. If you want to support the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers and help us keep sponsoring these activities and events, membership is $20 a year. Our membership year is Jan 1st - Dec 31st.

New members and new ideas are always welcome.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
