Atheists of Butte County is a California north state association of Freethinkers, Humanists, Rationalists, Skeptics and Atheists united to provide members with meaningful social, educational, voluntary and advocacy activities.
Is this a group for you? Well, ask yourself these questions: Are you tired of feeling like a second-class citizen and defending your non-belief? Would you like to do something to get religion out of government? Has critical thinking made believing difficult but you don’t know how to come out of the closet? Would you like to do what you can to turn the word, “atheist” into a term of respect? Would you like to improve your ability to think rationally and skeptically? Or do you just want to hang out with other rational thinkers?
If you said, “yes,” to any of the above, then please join us to share, learn and maybe even make a difference in our community. Be sure to attend our meetings to help guide our scope and direction. Some of the areas we often discuss in our meetings:
Form and function. We are working on a permanent meeting location. We are already associated with the national Coalition of Reason, Chico Skeptics, and the Secular Student Alliance at Chico State.
Social calendaring. We’re planning fun stuff like movie nights, pub or coffee clubs, reading discussion groups, and issue-driven discussions.
And don’t worry, even though the activities planned for this group may sound ambitious, these are just ideas and you’ll always be free to participate in as much or as little as you’d like. Hey, you think for yourself!
