What we're about

If you don't believe in supernatural entities or powers, if you are concerned about religious intolerance or religiously motivated violence, if you rely on human reasoning and science to guide your decisions and behavior, if you have a naturalistic view of the world, or you just don't believe in God or gods, you are not alone. The Boulder Atheists group provides presentations, meetings, and serves as a social community for atheists, agnostics, rationalists, secular humanists, Brights, and free thinkers in and around Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette, Broomfield, and surrounding communities in Northern Colorado.

Boulder Atheists wish to promote the understanding and acceptance of atheism with public education, good deeds, public activities and affiliations with other local and national secular groups. We have regular monthly meetings on the fourth Sunday of each month at the Boulder Creek Room at the Boulder Public Library. We also schedule regular social events such as our Thursday lunches at 12:30 PM at a restaurant in Boulder, a monthly evening social, Summer and Winter Solstice socials, and Movie Nights.

Our events will be posted on the Meetup calendar and on the Events page of our website. All of our events are open to the public.

Please visit our official website at http://www.boulderatheists.org/ for additional information and links.

Thursday Afternoon Events: Lunch at 3 Margaritas, Coffee at Red Rock Coffeehouse

The lunch social starts at 12:30 at 3 Margaritas, 28th and Iris, Boulder. Afternoon coffee starts at 4:00 at Red Rock Coffeehouse,[masked]th Street, Boulder. Across 28th from 3 Margaritas in the Safeway Shopping Center, around the north side. Join the dozen or so Boulder Atheists that regularly meet every Thursday for a social lunch at a restaurant in Boulder. The lunch gathering starts at 12:30 pm. and continues into the afternoon. Please RSVP if you intend to come. PLEASE NOTE: We often see several people stop in during the afternoon regardless of what the RSVP count on Meetup.com says. Some of the regulars are not frequent Internet users. All are welcome. Then, relax with a cup of coffee on your way home from work or after your long lunch at 3 Margaritas, starting at 4:00. We usually have good discussions on just about any topic. Since they close at 6, some of us wander over to the Cork to catch Happy Hour and keep the conversation going. Join us!

Boulder Atheists Monthly Meeting- Black Hole Big Bang

Boulder Public Library - Main Library

Join us in welcoming Dr. Andrew Hamilton, who is a Fellow of JILA and Professor of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences at CU Boulder. He is an expert on black holes and cosmology, with a current research focus on what happens inside astronomical black holes. Professor Andrew Hamilton will take us on an interactive journey inside a black hole. He will explore the proposition that our Universe was born inside a black hole, and that our Universe reproduces inside the supermassive black holes that exist at the centers of large galaxies, including our own. After the presentation there will be a Q&A and open-ended discussion.
