The Smartest Atheists in Town

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. This is a refreshing alternative for discerning Atheists. 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 or Agnostic, are a life-long learner who is not gullible enough to believe in conspiracy theories, and you see the benefits of a Meetup group offering 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 select Atheists and Agnostics interested in learning in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

Atheist Scholars hold monthly educational discussions while building long-term harmonious friendships. You are invited to apply for membership by clicking on the link below. All meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of every month, 7 to 9:30 pm. Annual membership dues are $25. Attendance at the majority of lectures is required. Website lurkers are not allowed.

Our current meeting format consists of a review and discussion of a selected book that has strong appeal to atheists in the rich context of science, philosophy, sociology, history, and/or psychology. A book is chosen by consensus among those members attending the prior meeting.

Atheist Scholars is for those who appreciate the value of learning in a 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 discussions.

This is an exclusive Meetup group. All members must apply for membership.

Annual dues are $25. Attendance at 7 of 12 consecutive meetings that are normally held once a month is required.
