(Excluding; anything that dehumanizes, or is intended to be mean, cruel or generally not kind.)

A: Our Meet-ups vary depending on the mix of member, topics discussed and general state of the world. Oh there will be discussion!

Q: How long will the Meetup be?
A: To misquote Fight Club, “Atheist stuff will last as long as it needs to,” which is to say, as long as the venue is open. Closing time kicks us out into the street.

A: The ACSCS recognizes that there are multiple understandings of the words Atheist, and Atheist, and refuses to back as specific definition so as open the meet-up to a wider variety of members and understandings.
