Quote of the Week

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
“My people are going to learn the principles of democracy the dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition must go. Let them worship as they will, every man can follow his own conscience provided it does not interfere with sane reason or bid him act against the liberty of his fellow men."

Volunteers Beyond Belief

Welcome to the Secular Alliance

Atheist. Agnostic. Humanist. Pastafarian. Bright. Freethinker. Secular. Rationalist. Skeptic. Non-Religious. Questioning.

Whatever label (or lack thereof) you chose to use, we welcome you into the Secular Alliance at the University of Chicago. Maybe you're already an agnostic or athiest, and want to find your fellow non-believers on campus. Maybe you're questioning religion and want to hear a different side. Perhaps you're looking for other critical thinkers. Maybe you're curious about exactly what it means to be "secular", and want to see if you fit the definition. Whatever your reason, we hope you'll find a community here.

What We Do

Founded three years ago, the University of Chicago Secular Alliance has grown from a group of 8 students meeting once a week to watch YouTube videos and discuss secular issues in the world, to a significant part of the spiritual life community on campus. Some of the things we've done:

Debates with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and other religious groups
Co-hosting talks from PZ Myers, Greta Christina, Serah Blain, Ted Cox, and Sam Harris
Sell your Soul for a Cookie
Funny YouTube video days
Creationist Bingo
...and much more!

We have a lot more planned for this year, and the future, so we hope you'll join us!
