We believe in rigorously questioning ideas and assumptions rather than accepting them at face value. We seek to determine whether the ideas, arguments and findings represent the entire picture and are open to finding that they do not. Critical Thinking Compassion We hold that human compassion and empathy are crucial to improving the human condition. We need to allow ourselves to be moved by suffering be motivated to help alleviate and prevent it. Knowledge We value knowledge and hold that the endeavor to increase it as best we can in order to pursue the truths about our world is one of the noblest efforts one can make. Any and all efforts to stifle or denigrate knowledge and learning is immoral. Freedom We hold that all people have the inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and that all people are entitled to freedom of conscience. Responsibility We believe that we are responsible for humane interaction with other people, other animals and for the preservation of our habitable planet.

What is atheism?

Atheism is not devil worship

Atheism is in the broadest sense an absence of belief in the existence of deities. Less broadly, atheism is a rejection of the belief that any deities exist. In an even narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Atheism is contrasted with theism, which in its most general form is the belief that at least one deity exists.

The actual term atheism emerged first in the 16th century. With the spread of freethought, skeptical inquiry, and subsequent increase in criticism of religion, application of the term narrowed in scope. The first individuals to identify themselves using the word atheist lived in the 18th century during the Age of Enlightenment. The French Revolution noted for its “unprecedented atheism”, witnessed the first major political movement in history to advocate for the supremacy of human reason.

This is the only life we have

There is no supernatural

We hold the belief that this life is the only life we have, that the universe is a natural phenomenon with no supernatural side, and that we can live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We trust the scientific method, evidence, and reason to discover truths about the universe and place human welfare and happiness at the center of our ethical decision-making.
