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
...and much more!
