(Want the CVAAS website? Click here! (http://www.cvaas.org/))

The Central Valley Alliance of Atheists and Skeptics (CVAAS) consists of Atheists, Skeptics, Secular Humanists, Freethinkers, Brights, non-believers and other Secular people who don't require supernatural explanations of the natural world.

We offer a fun environment where skeptical and secular people can take a break from the area's religious environment.

We also host tabling events to raise awareness of our group and secular viewpoints, we participate in the public sector to act as a secular voice in the California Central Valley, and we work to educate and inspire the public using science and rational viewpoints.

CVAAS has hosted and supported the following events:

• Michael Shermer vs Dinesh D’Souza Debate

• Breakfast with James Randi

• Goparaju Vijayam – Exec. Director of Atheist Centre of India lecture

• Bill Maher at the Saroyan Theatre

• Atheist billboard in Fresno

• City Council prayer protest with the FFRF

• Camp Quest West

• Fresno Bee ghost hunter counterpoint interview

• Lectures at University of Phoenix

CVAAS also hosts our annual Heretic’s Barbecue in October.

CVAAS is affiliated with other secular and rational groups, including the Coalition of Reason, American Atheists, Secular Student Alliance, Secular Coalition for America, Atheist Alliance International, Orange County Freethought Alliance and the Central Valley Café Scientifique.

Drinking Skeptically

Wahoos Fish Tacos

Come join us for an evening of fun, food, and your favorite beverage! Drinking Skeptically is where CVAAS members and friends meet to discuss any topic. Nothing is off the table. Our one rule is this: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence! Unless noted otherwise for a special occasion, this event meets at Wahoo's Fish Taco near The SaveMart Center by Fresno State. You can find Wahoo's off of Shaw between The SaveMart Center and the 168 Freeway. The restaurant/bar faces the Maya Theater. If our president can remember (looking at you El Capitan), there will also be a CVAAS sign on the table; otherwise, look for the large group of skeptical looking people. We are there from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm (or longer) on the first Saturday of every month! Come on down and join us!
