How did you find us?

Through a Humanist Connection event.

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.

I am a Humanist/atheist.

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

I like celebrity speakers as well as local bright-lights who have well-prepared presentations. I like debates. I am looking for open-minded inquiry and lateral thinking. Let's stretch ourselves with challenging ideas, not just have a self-congratulating echo chamber. I am looking for social camaraderie and mental stimulation in a group which is willing to grow and try new things.


Ph.D. biochemist, retired from the biotech industry. Raised a Methodist, I've been a freethinker since college.

What Fred J. is saying about this Meetup Group
