We are humanists who believe how we live and what we do with our lives is important. How we treat each other does matter. Meet other people who are for the life transformation that occurs when simple basic goodness is placed over religion. This radical shift is liberating and brings people heart-to-heart. This is so significant that it can be said "Morality over religion is our religion." The more the world moves in this direction, the more justice and fairness, community and love can be created.

We commit ourselves to the unique worth of every person. We build relationships that bring out the best in others and in ourselves. Our faith is in the human capacity to create a better world.

Each Sunday at 10:30 in St Peters, we hear speakers who bring new eye-opening perspectives. Some of us join the Ethical Society as a more formal pledged commitment than a Meetup group, but that is never a requirement. Sunday Ethical Education for Kids (SEEK) is also offered during the regular program/platform.

Here, people of many stripes feel at home with one another, whether they are spiritual but not religious, religious but not dogmatic, spirited but not spiritual, artists but not ritualists, activists but not fundamentalists, and whether they are agnostics, atheists, theists or etheists. To be clear, we do not allow religious proselytizing that is based on anything other than ethics.  We do allow, learn from, and even enjoy, examining religions on the basis of what they lead their members to do. For example, if a religious faction leads its followers to deny scientific findings, we regard that as strong evidence that there is something wrong with the religion itself.  If someone attends our meetings and wants to witness to a faith that is based on placing anything over ethics, it's simply inappropriate. Here we are all at home in the cause of simple basic goodness. In all of these, we grow in respect and friendship with one another.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
