How did you find us?


In a few words or a single sentence, describe your current position with regard to religious claims (e.g. atheist, agnostic, non-believer, believer, searching believer, etc). Please be specific in order to have your membership approved.

Atheist anti-theist. Yeah I know, technically I'm also agnostic, but that word just isn't strong enough.

What types of events interest you, and what do you hope to get from the Atheist Community of San José (ACSJ)?

No answer yet


Been an atheist since before I knew there was a word for it. My parents tried to make me a believer for whatever bullshit reason they had but they realized early on it just wasn't going to take.

What Mike Van R. is saying about this Meetup Group

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?
