What we're about

This is a group for everyone. We seek rational, humanistic inquiry and community through fun activities, events, and volunteering opportunities. We are Skeptics, Freethinkers, Science Buffs, Humanists, Atheists, Agnostics, who enjoy critical thinking and intellectual discussion with like-minded individuals. Come and "ASC" us anything!

The mission of the Atheist Society of Calgary (ASC) is to foster a community of atheists, humanists, skeptics and secular free thinkers; to provide education and promote scientifically-based knowledge; and to uphold the separation of religion and government.
