What we're about

Everyone is welcome at all our events. This group is inclusive of anyone who shares the beliefs of Humanism or Freethought. Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds that opinions should be formed on the basis of science, logic, and reason, and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, or any dogma. Humanism believes in the primacy of human, rather than divine or supernatual matters.

We hold meetups in a variety of formats including social chats, movie viewing and reviewing, presentations by invited speakers, Trivia Nights, Saturday brunches, or anything our members might be inclined to do that involves a bit of organization. Want to go on a hike? Announce it and people will join up!

Enjoy a break from the pervasive religiosity of the area with like-minded people—and potential friends— who don't mind that you don't "believe". We are evidence-seekers, not-sures and don't-cares; activists, and deep-thinkers. This eclectic group includes working professionals, retirees and students. Join us and share your story!

For a broader range of events, see the calendar at http://www.piedmonthumanists.org/calendar/ (http://www.piedmonthumanists.org/blog/calendar/) for other group's activities.

Please note that many of our regular members don't RSVP online, so events might be attended by more people than the RSVP number indicates. However, we would still encourage you to RSVP so we can better plan events. We look forward to having you with us at our gatherings!

Humanism Video Viewing

Coffee Underground

We’ll view one of several Humanism-themed videos from a collection held by our own Tom Harrison. Discussion will follow.

Second Saturday Brunch @ Golden Corral

Golden Corral

This is the regularly scheduled brunch for the Piedmont Humanists. We'll be in the back room. Come meet your fellow Humanists!

Board Game Day!

Coffee Underground

Travel with us back in time, before the Creation of the Digital Universe, to explore the Milton-Bradley Phenomenon! Enjoy great company and conversation as you engage in the not-so-trivial pursuit of mastering your favorite board (or card) game! You can bring your own game or select from several games that will be on site. This will be a “catered” event—there will be food and drink available for noshing between victories. So, pass “go”, collect $200, stay out of jail, and join the group for some low-tech fun—you definitely won’t be “board”!

Open Discussion

Coffee Underground

We’ll have a topic-triggered discussion selected by Brandy.
