Community forms the backbone of any successful group, and the Alliance of Happy Atheists is no different. Our meetings are an opportunity to meet and interact with like minded people from all majors, backgrounds and walks of life. We encourage anyone who considers themselves to be a skeptic, rationalist, atheist, agnostic, deist, bright, agnostic, or freethinker to join our club and attend our meetings. If you’re unsure if you’ll fit in, why not stop by and find out? We promise we don’t bite (often).
If you’re wondering what we do at our meetings, why don’t you take a look at our club FAQ?
In the past, our meetings have covered many serious topics including:
- Ethical philosophy (how exactly can you be good without god?)
- Political philosophy (What should the role of religion in society be?)
- Religious philosophy (How do you define god or gods?)
- Science (The Big Bang Theory and Evolution)
- Identifying and avoiding fallacies (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy)
- Practical debate / discussion strategies
- The perspective of the religious, including presentations from religious groups.
And some not so serious topics including:
- Watching movies that may or may not pertain to the club.
- Sharing funny stories, videos, comics, etc.
- Simple socializing, talking about school and life with friends (and on special occasions, food!)
Some of our meetings include showing of films of interest to our group or consist of attending religiously oriented events on campus. There really is something for everyone, but if there is something you’d like to see done or discussed, please contact us. The time and location of our next meeting is displayed on the homepage and on our calendar.
