What we're about

Minnesota Atheists is Minnesota's oldest and largest atheist organization. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, educational organization that seeks to promote the positive contributions of atheism to society, provides a community for nonbelievers, educates the public about atheism, and promotes separation of state and church. We help make atheism part of mainstream society. We look forward to meeting you!

We are a member-supported organization. Everyone who works for Minnesota Atheists is a volunteer, but getting our word out does cost money. This site, our website, mailing newsletters, filming a cable TV show and participating in public events like festivals and parades all add up. We can do all of this thanks to you!

Freethinking Females evening at Sweeney's Saloon

Sweeney's Saloon

Once again we're exploding the myth that atheist groups are always male dominated with this Meetup that's just for women! Come and meet with other female and female-identified freethinkers at 5:30 p.m. on the fourth Monday of each month at Sweeney's Saloon in Saint Paul. http://sweeneyssaloon.com/

We have a table reserved where we can share our stories and get to know each other. Our space is limited, so we have to cap the crowd at 10 and can't accept "maybe" RSVPs. If you sign up and later learn you can't make it, please change your RSVP so someone else can come.

In Depth - Discussion and Debate

Online event

Next Topic: Meritocracy - Reward(/pay) based on contribution(s)

What's this about: Discussion and Debate, with Anyone, about Anything!

Do you enjoy learning from others? Do you have ideas and opinions that you are willing to share? Let's get together on a selected subject and dig into it. What does it mean to you? This event is for people that enjoy staying on a topic and learning from each other, even though we may disagree. While each might be knowledgeable on a subject, it's likely that someone else has another perspective or background on that subject. Share what you know and ask others about their perspectives. We'll make sure everyone gets to share their views or you can just listen in, if you like.

Who: Everyone, especially people open to hearing another point of view.

When: Second and Fourth Tuesdays of each month, at 3:00 pm. 60 minutes (optionally extended by participants)

How: We'll post a topic to discuss prior to each event - think "book club" without having to read the book. At the end of our discussion, we'll select the next topic. This will give everyone the option to do a little "homework" before meeting again.

Where: Covid continues making this an online event. Hopefully, we'd be able to meet in person eventually.

Link to the Zoom meeting will be available to RSVP'ers. Link will be active about 5-10 minutes before the Meetup starts.

Why: Life gets more interesting when it involves other people. Let's keep it interesting as well as fun.

M.A.S.H! Wednesdays (Mn Atheists Social Hour!)

Online event

Are you feeling SWAMPed? And you STILL can't overcome the feeling that you're missing time with others. Maybe you're a bit TENTative about meeting other Atheists. Perhaps you'd like to ask PIERCEing questions or just shoot some BS or BJ or KP. Do you have a HAWKEYE for details? It's all CAMPy fun and 'JEEP entertainment. COT your attention?

To answer some PRE-OP's, this is just for visiting O.R. perhaps filling a void - no ENLISTMENT necessary (well, maybe a Meetup RSVP). Fill your CANTEEN with some G.I. JOE or other favorite SWILL and NURSE it along for an hour. Go ahead, saunter up to the fuBAR and give your ORDERS (though no one is listening, just like in real life). You can enter RECOVERY later.

While some might share PRIVATE stories with a COLONEL of truth, most will be of the GENERAL kind, with some MAJOR variations - none requiring CORPORAL pun-ishment. Whether you CAPTAIN your own SHIP OUT of harbors or maybe you're a KLINGER-on'er, what passes by HOT LIPS stays here. If you're a POTTER or a TRAPPER - set your hobby aside for a bit. We can't all make it to PADRE Island but we can talk about our favorite escapes. Come and hear what others are doing lately - what's on your RADAR?.

So as to not be COURT-MARTIALED - Dis' Claimer: This event has NOTHING to do with "M.A.S.H." - the book or movie or TV show. Any association is completely incidental and does not reflect the views of our sponsors. This is a NON-COMMISSIONED plug for MN Atheists.

IN-COMING around 5:30 PM, every Wednesday; with occasional AWOL's.

Bans Off Our Bodies: March for Reproductive Freedom

Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

On October 2nd, organizers in all 50 states are holding marches to stand up for reproductive rights! What has happened in TX cannot stand. Attend this rally to send a clear message to the Supreme Court and all those who seek to strip citizens of their rights, that reproductive rights are human rights.

In Minnesota, marchers will gather at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden at 11:00 to march to the rally location within Loring Park. Rally starts at 12:00. If you would like to help with this action - volunteer - https://tinyurl.com/marchforreprofreedom - or donate today!

This rally is being hosted by Women's March MN and several Reproductive Justice groups. Please REGISTER at - https://tinyurl.com/reprofreedom10-2-21 - so that they know you’ll be there and to get updates on details as they roll in.

RSVP here on Meetup so we know who else from the atheist community will be there. I expect this to be a big event where it might be hard for us all to meet up as a group.
