This is the public page for Contra Costa Atheists and Freethinkers (CCAF).
You may find our group of interest if you subscribe to the idea that knowledge of objective reality advances by way of scientific inquiry and the use of improved investigative tools, both of which illuminate previously unknown facets of our universe. We do not endorse the idea of supernatural phenomena or religious dogma as an explanation for anything.
We especially encourage the disclosure of your atheist, skeptical or freethinker views as a method of educating the uninformed public about who we are -- and that we are many!
CCAF endeavors to provide informative and enjoyable activities that promote opportunities for faith-free discourse. Our activities have included thought-provoking talks by invited speakers; discussions about various topics, including videos and books; group rendezvous at clubs, movies and restaurants; organized hikes and tours; and just getting to know and enjoy each other at parties. Suggestions for new activities are always welcome.
If you want to join CCAF, you need to be signed-up with Meetup. However, CCAF is a private organization, and requests to join will be reviewed. In part, this is to provide a measure of security to members who are not yet ready to announce their views to casual online visitors. In part, this is also to discourage commercial solicitation or tacit endorsement of weird viewpoints.
Although CCAF is affiliated with other atheist and skeptical organizations, we do not share our membership list.
A brief history: Beginning in 2006, CCAF was originally known as Atheists and Freethinkers of Contra Costa County. It was organized around an email list of interested individuals. In July 2011 CCAF migrated to the Meetup platform, which provides useful membership and organizational tools.
