What we're about
Schuylkill County Atheists, Agnostics, and Secular Humanists (SCAASH) is a geographical outreach of Lehigh Valley Humanists, a chapter of the American Humanist Association. As secular humanists, we strive to bring about a progressive society where being “good without a god” is an accepted and respected way to live life. Humanism encompasses a variety of nontheistic views (atheism, agnosticism, rationalism, naturalism, secularism, and so forth) while adding the important element of a comprehensive worldview and a set of ethical values – values that are grounded in the philosophy of the Enlightenment, informed by scientific knowledge, and driven by a desire to meet the needs of people in the here and now. We promote human rights, civil liberties, the scientific method, and the democratic process in an open, secular, and humane society.
