The Smartest Atheists in Town

Atheist Scholars Meetup is a monthly book club for Atheists who are serious about learning from a free-thinking, post-religious perspective and about building long-term friendships. You are invited to apply for membership by clicking on the link below. All meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of every month, 7 to 9:30 pm. There are no membership dues, but donations to cover our direct costs are requested. 

Attendance at 4 of 6 consecutive meetings is required.

In fairness to everyone attending who expects to have a meaningful discussion and productive learning experience, you must have read the chosen book prior to attending each meeting. Most books chosen are available as audiobooks.

Calling oneself an “Atheist” is just the beginning, not the end, of a life-long journey of learning, dialog and discovery. The Atheist Scholars Meetup group raises the standard among local Atheist groups by building a private membership focused on learning in a harmonious environment. Maybe you have been reluctant to join an Atheist group in the past or maybe you are not interested in what the other groups in our area have to offer.

If you call yourself an Atheist, are a life-long learner who is not gullible enough to believe in conspiracy theories, and you see the benefits of a Meetup group that offers serious book discussions with order and civility, please apply for membership in Atheist Scholars. By “Scholars”, we mean serious students of Atheism. This is an exclusive, discussion-based Meetup for Atheists interested in learning in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

Our current meeting format consists of a review and discussion of a selected book that has a strong appeal to Atheists in the rich context of science, philosophy, sociology, history, and/or psychology. All books will have a distinct atheistic or free-thinking perspective. Using this criteria for selecting a book, the next book is chosen by consensus among those members attending the prior meeting.

Atheist Scholars is for those who appreciate the value of exchanging ideas with a like-minded group and who enjoy asking “why” more than claiming to know “because.” It’s for committed life-long learners looking for an impressive group of smart friends to share in intellectual discussions.

Attendance at 4 of 6 consecutive meetings is required.
