***Until "Stay At Home" orders and "Social Distancing" guidelines change we at PAMG will be hosting virtual or online events only. Even if you see a regular, reoccurring in-person event listed, any Covid19 "Social Distancing" or "Stay At Home" orders (i.e Executive Order 2020-18) from Local, State, or National authorities supersede what you may see listed here.***
**With that I would hope that we can stay in touch in other ways. Sometimes as non-theists we can feel isolated even when life is "normal" so contact with like minded people is still important. Contact a member through meetup, text a member, contact through social media or ideally actually call them. Right now, because we cannot meet in person, an old fashioned phone call could make the difference in someone's day. Also, which likely goes without saying, please don't hesitate to reach out if you are in need. We are a large, diverse network of people with varying skill sets. If one of our organizers cannot help directly, chances are we can find someone who can.**
Gods will not fix this.
Religion will not make more tests.
Vaccines are not miracles.
Humans have tools for our path ahead:
science, critical thinking, open access to real information, truth telling, caring for others, medical knowledge, altruism, plans & patience.
This group is mainly to get like-minded individuals connected and together to socialize. As Atheists/Agnostics/Humanists/Freethinkers may feel like the minority in almost all regions of America, statistically we are doing pretty good. This is an attempt to reach out to those in the greater Phoenix area offering a chance to meet others, to discuss positive activism in the community and build a network of thinking, rational people. We'd like this to be a safe landing spot for life long atheists or those who may have just left a religious group and are looking for a place with open minded people. Ultimately we want this be be a low pressure social group where non-theists can feel open and comfortable. (I am sorry I even feel a need to post this part but the administration of this group does not accept bigotry or behaviors rooted in racism. No 'hatheists' please. If you are bringing that please look elsewhere.)
