What we're about

Welcome to the Stockton Area Atheists and Freethinkers!

We are a group of non-believers that focuses on community involvement, social events, education and information, and activism.

Most of our meetings are held in San Joaquin County, from Lodi to Manteca -- though we occasionally join efforts with our friends in Modesto, Sacramento, and the Bay Area.

We have a number of repeating events, including "Drinking Skeptically", game night, brunch, highway cleanup, colloquium, and more.

The Stockton Area Atheists and Freethinkers has no monthly dues, and no mandatory attendance. We're just looking for like-minded people who believe in good.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/StocktonAtheists), too.

Upcoming events (5+)

Colloquium: Creation vs. The Big Bang

Manteca Library

Relying on the Big Bang Theory, Professor Park will present novel objections against the modern day rendition of the Kalām cosmological argument for God's existence (often raised by Christian Apologist William Lane Craig). The conclusion is reached that this cosmological argument and several of its variants do not lead us to believe that there is inevitably a supernatural cause to the universe. Dr. John J. Park is an assistant professor of philosophy at California State University, Sacramento. He received his PhD in philosophy from Duke University. His research interests are in philosophy of religion, ethics, and philosophy of mind and cognitive science. 🎟 About the Free Event This is a free event, open to the public, at the Manteca Library. Those of all worldviews and faiths are welcome. Doors open at 7:15 PM and our featured talk starts shortly after. We expect most Colloquiums to last until about 8:15 PM followed by mingling and cleanup. Water and snacks are provided. Parking is free. Suggested donations of $10 to support this and future colloquiums are appreciated. 🍜 Dinner Before For those interested in joining us for dinner, head to the GK Mongolian BBQ (1039 S Main St) prior to the event. People typically arrive around 6:00 and leave at 6:50 to start setting up at the Manteca Library.

Game Night (Stockton)

Andy's home

Game Night (Stockton), is hosted by Sarah at Andy's home in Stockton (near March and I-5) on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Don't worry about formalities. Just show up when you can and leave when you've had enough fun. We typically play games like Geek Battle, Linkee, That's What She Said, Cards Against Humanity, and Midnight Taboo. Got your own game? Bring it! Potluck Too It's also a bit of a potluck, so feel free to bring some drinks, snacks, or desserts to share with others. Hint: Most of us are vegetarian. Adults Only For their safety, please keep the little ones at home.
