The Bluegrass Coalition of Reason is made up of atheist, freethought, and humanist groups working together in the Lexington, Kentucky area. Our twin goals are to foster a sense of community among the like minded and raise public awareness that people who don’t believe in a god or gods can be decent citizens who contribute to the larger society.
So, if you are of a secular mind, you aren’t alone. Thousands of your friends and neighbors in this area think and feel as you do. And there are local groups that advance your views and welcome your participation! This website will help you find events to attend, activities in which to participate, people with whom to socialize, and groups to join.
After all, like everyone else, we benefit from a supportive community for friendship, learning, social service, and activism. Moreover, atheists and agnostics make up a significant portion of the population, both nationally and globally, outnumbering most religious and other minorities combined. For example, the American Religious Identification Survey reports that 12 percent of Americans are nontheistic. This places us as one of the largest minorities in America. Yet we don’t enjoy the benefits of our numbers because we aren’t well organized. This coalition is here to change that.
To the traditional religious community we want to say that, although we nontheists are without a belief in the supernatural, we do share the compassionate human values that most people embrace. As hard working, tax-paying, ethical citizens, we care deeply about our families, our communities, our state, our nation, and the world.
We can be reached HERE if you have any questions.

The Kentucky Association of Science Educators and Skeptics is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting science education and critical thinking in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Founded in 1989 by CSICOP (now CSI — Committee for Skeptical Inquiry) Fellows Robert A. Baker and Joe Nickell, our membership includes dozens of science professionals and educators at every educational level, as well as engineers, attorneys, medical professionals, computer science professionals, librarians, and other similarly-interested citizens.
The Lexington Atheist meetup is a group of people that meet for discourse on topics of interest to the atheist/freethought/skeptic community. Our mission is simple: Provide a community for atheists, skeptics, freethinkers in and around the Lexington area. We do this is by holding discussions, lectures, and get-togethers in order to meet others that share in our skeptical view of religion and spirituality.
