How did you hear about us?

I was a newer member of the Humanist Association of Salem. Together we voted to become a satellite CFI group.

What would you like a community like ours to provide for you ideally?

Ideally, I would like to see the negative stereotype, that goes with being an atheist or non-believer, start to go away. To show people that we are charitable, caring, involved, active citizens in our community. To educate people on the importance of TOTAL separation of church and state.

How do you go about knowing something is true?

By looking at the evidence available to determine the validity of a claim.


I have been a life-long atheist. I'm married. My interests include, traveling, art, movies, music, working on my classic car.

What Lance Van V. is saying about this Meetup Group

I'm looking forward to seeing what the group can do in the Salem area.
