What we’re about

Atheist Society of Knoxville (ASK) is an organization created to promote humanistic values through community outreach while advocating for the separation of church and state and equality, as well as providing community, camaraderie, and outreach to the atheist community of East Tennessee.
Our weekly meetups are at Barley’s Downtown on Tuesdays, at 5:30 pm.  Approximately 25 people come out to our weekly meetups!  We hope you join us!  
ASK does not require dues but we do accept donations to help cover the costs of FFTV, various events, and swag.

Also, be aware that there is also another Rational/Freethought group in Knoxville; The Rationalists of East Tennessee (RET). RET meets Sundays on the campus of Pellissippi State Community College on Hardin Valley Road. Visit ! We have a Radio Show too! It's on 103.9 FM @ 7 pm Wednesdays. (online at
