We hold meetings once each month from September through May.
  • Time: Generally they are held at 4 p.m. on the third Sunday of each month. However, this is not always the case. It is best to look at the latest newsletter or our list of upcoming events to get the correct information.
  • Place: Most of our meetings, except December and May, are held at Gage Hall, 4 Archdale St. in downtown Charleston, next to the Unitarian Church.
  • Content: Our meetings are designed to be fun, interesting, educational, motivational or stimulating, but involve no prayer or worship. Usually, they involve a presentation from an expert on some provocative and timely subject followed by questions from the audience. Those interested in continuing the discussion generally go to dinner together following the meeting at a nearby restaurant.

    Here are a few examples of the "main events" at some past meetings:

    • CofC Biology Professor Rob Dillon spoke to us about the politics of teaching about the evolution of species in South Carolina.
    • Author Katherine Stewart spoke on the subject of her critically acclaimed book, The Good News Club.
    • Seth Andrews, host of "The Thinking Atheist" podcast, gave a talk called "Exploding Sacred Cows".
    • Rob Boston from Americans United for Separation of Church and State gave an excellent talk on the history of religious freedom.
    • Greta Christina, one of the most widely-read and well-respected bloggers in the atheist blogosphere, gave an optimistic talk explaining why "Resistance is Not Futile".
