“ Beyond Excellent. I don't make it to San Jose as much as I'd like to but it's obvious ACSJ's leadership is doing something right. They are friendly, upbeat, welcoming and organized. This is why they have consistent attendance at their events. I wish you guys had some leadership up here in San Francisco! ”

“ It's a good informative community ”
— Tom B. on Oct 18, 2015.
“ The fact that I've stayed active with this group for the entire 2.5 years since its inception tells you how much I enjoy it and feel at home with it. Beyond discussions about breaking from religion, evolution of morality, legal & social issues of atheism, and beyond fun activities like picnics, bowling, hiking, beach parties, dinner parties, etc., we're now getting more serious and more funding into philanthropic activities like blood donations, food bank assistance, various homeless aids, environmental & street clean-ups, and teaching critical thinking skills at elementary schools. I clicked with this group from the start and I can see us developing into a close-knit community that supports one another in tough times as well as the easy ones, the kind all people search for. ”
— Werner H. on Aug 11, 2015.

“ Growing fast! Great group of people. ”
— Fred J. on Aug 21, 2014.
“ Great! I am glad I've joined. I really enjoy debating in good spirit. Not having someone yell at me or fly off the handle when I ponder talking snakes, or blatant hypocrisy is super refreshing. It gives me the opportunity to feel "right at home," instead of harsh, insensitive or disillusioned. Like Jaclyn stated, as soon as you don't believe in anything, there must be something wrong with you! It's also super refreshing to be around people who seem logical, intelligent and have a sense of humor. ”

“ Seems nice judging by the members who attended. Other groups represented also seemed good. I RSVP with pic. Can you add me to below? ”
— Sena & Alex H. on Jun 21, 2014.
“ This was my first meetup with this group. I was a little taken back that no one came over to introduce themselves, or say welcome, since we walked in at 6:20pm which has been my experience at other meetup groups. It was obvious that most members in attendance, knew new each other...so I knew I was an unfamiliar face as well as my three guests. The start time was listed as 6:30pm but the actual lecture didn't start until 7pm. It would have been "very" useful to know that. I'll give the group another try. I liked their charter statement, and the volunteer work they are trying to promote. ”

— Kevin H. on Dec 8, 2013.
“ Pretty good group with lots of activity. I'm in a couple other groups but they usually don't have anything I am willing to travel for. I generally avoid "freethinker", "bright", "humanist" or "skeptic" labels. Even Bible/Torah/Koran thumpers claim to be these things so what do the labels really mean? ”
— Mike Van R. on Nov 29, 2013.
“ It's wonderful to be able to speak my mind and not be judged as evil or delusional by people who are most likely far more delusional than I. I think it's natural to want to be around like minded folks, and I find a lot of that in this group. Love the intellectual discourse and bouncing ideas with total freedom from dogma. ”

“ If you are looking for a good group of people with similar views on the nature of God(s) - this is the place for you. We seem to be growing at every meeting, those who attend have decided to return. We are building something important here, this could very well replace the idea or need for churches in the future. ”
