We are a group of individuals who believe in the miracles of nature
rather than the mysticism of the Bible. We believe in the importance
of humanity in the here and now rather than in a misty afterlife
that cannot be proven to exist. We believe in science, the scientific
method, and in the human wonders of art, literature, and music.
We believe in treating other humans well because it is the right
thing to do, not because we have been promised a supernatural heavenly
reward, or because we wish to avoid a hellish supernatural punishment.
Because we value human beings above all else, we have very strong
feelings about how people should be treated. Read about our doctrine
of Mutual Respect here.
Because we are much more than people who happen not to believe in
gods, we value highly those things in which we do believe. Read

We also have strong beliefs about certain issues of our time. We
believe, for example, that our governments and our religions should
be widely separated. We believe that pseudo-scientific foolishness
like Creationism and Intelligent design should not be allowed to
take valuable time from real science, especially at a time when
science holds the keys to the future of humankind. We believe that
the mysticism of organized religion, worldwide, is further polarizing
groups of human beings while lying to our children about the universe
in which we live, and paralyzing scientific progress.
We believe equally strongly that religious people are good people,
although misguided by a competing and divided clergy that seeks
to control the thoughts and actions of religious adherents to keep
as much power, influence, and money as possible in the hands of
that same clergy. We have no quarrel with any churchgoer. Our differences
are with the organized clergy that seeks to control them.
We will endeavor to promote the causes of Humanism, Atheism, Agnosticism,
Freethought, Pantheism, and Naturalism by spreading our positive
messages across the wondrous and fragile planet that we share. All
that we desire is that reason triumph over superstition, making
our shared world a safer, less stressful, and less controlled environment
for us and for our children.
Web site is an intentionally god-free zone. We are proud of that.
The evidence clearly shows that the Universe is also god-free,
and we hope that every human being alive now and in the future
will have the philosophical clarity of mind to realize that single
