What we're about

Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Atheists!

The mission of the Rocky Mountain Atheists (RMA) is to be a safe and supportive secular community dedicated to serving society; to support those who have been marginalized or traumatized as a result of faith-based beliefs; and to provide and promote evidence-based learning opportunities.

RMA is so much more than a Meetup group! We typically host about 10 events per month, most of them free. Our activities include social gatherings, peer support, community service, and educational activities. If you would like to learn more about our organization, please visit us at www.rockymountainatheists.ca

Life Without Religion - Online

Needs a location

Life Without Religion is a peer support group created for individuals who experience difficulty in their lives due to leaving a religion or serious conflicts caused by religious influences. Due to the nature of the group, an interview with the group leader or another representative of the group, is necessary before joining. It is imperative that group membership remain anonymous. An individual is certainly welcome to acknowledge one’s own involvement in this group, but never should they divulge the names or contact information of other members. The group meets twice per month in a private setting. If you are interested in joining this group, please contact Lois at [masked].
There is no need to RSVP on Meetup if you don't want your name associated with this event

Skeptics in the Pub

Bottlescrew Bill's Pub

Each month we have a short presentation on either a religious or skeptical topic followed by a discussion! There is also plenty of time to mingle and meet other atheists, humanists, skeptics, and overall great people.

Skeptics in the Pub Calgary has been running monthly since 2008! We started presenting monthly topics in 2018, and many members of our community have either presented or suggested great topics. This group meets on the first Tuesday of every month.

This event will take place at Bottlescrew Bill's. We are in the semi-private room to the left as you come in the door. Look for our big sign!
