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!

Upcoming events (4+)

In-person Trivia night (Sundays @ Venn Brewery)

Venn Brewing

Some of our brainiac members are interested in testing their recall of all things trivia - gasp! - with other people present at Venn Brewery in SE Minneapolis. Looks like they have lots of tasty sounding beers there. For food, there is a food truck scheduled but the taproom allows you to bring your own food if you'd like to do that instead.

Trivia starts at 6:00 PM. You may find people arrive around 5:30 to socialize and hopefully find a table. If you are new, look at some profiles of RSVP'ers on Meetup to help you find the group. (Mike won't be attending often so try a few other names)

!!! Parking is limited in this neighborhood. There are signs posted noting only two hour parking before 8:00PM so be careful. Arriving early may help in finding a spot but that may require you moving your car - don't get towed!. The picture (Venn diagram?) shows a cul-de-sac on E 45th St, just north of Venn, where there may be extra space but with the same 2 hr restrictions. It is a great time to check out the Blue Line with a light rail station just a parking lot away from the Venn.

This is a repeating event. You can just show up but an RSVP here would be appreciated just to help attendees connect. Have fun with whomever shows up. Winning is an added perk! Our historic Trivia group name is "No Dissonance, you have to back it up" - using it isn't a requirement but "Why not!".

Please follow CDC guidance. Currently, masks expected when not at your table, but things change too.

The group of people attending each week can/will change. There is no official host so have fun with whomever becomes your teammates that week.

Venn's promo:
Venn Brewing Company invites you to come out and play. Venn brews fantastic batches of beer, and once those batches are empty, that’s it. Each beer is a new, flavorful experiment. The taproom is literally a few steps away from the METRO Blue Line’s 46th Street Station, and rotating food trucks will do your belly right.

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.

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.
