 Fredericksburg Skeptics

We’re a social group which meets for dinner and other events.

Our events are designed to promote fellowship and networking among skeptics, critical thinkers, rationalists, non-thesists (doubters, agnotics, atheists), and other like-minded individuals. They provide an opportunity for our members to talk and share ideas in a casual, relaxed, atmosphere.  We discuss the issues of the day and whatever else is on our minds.  But most of all, we have fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality.  Skeptics of all political stripes are welcome.

 Reading Skeptically

This group is designed for independent thinkers with a focus on reading books that challenge the standard narrative of culture, i.e. concepts that are generally accepted as true by the greater populous, but may not be entirely accurate.  We focus on non-fiction, scholarly books that take a critical approach to cultural and technological issues.  Every third book, we will switch to fiction that stimulates thinking outside the box.  While this group is designated non-theist and affiliated with the local chapter of Drinking Skeptically and the Fredericksburg Secular Humanists, we are not exclusive to non-theists in membership; come with a critical, inquisitive mind, and you are welcome!

Fredericksburg Parenting Beyond Belief

This group was started so that members can help each other work through the difficulties and questions of raising children as secular freethinkers in a mainly religious society. You should join if you have questions such as "Is telling my child Santa is real the same as telling them Jesus is real?" or "What do I do when my child wants to go to church or is curious why all his/her friends are going without him/her?"
