The Central Arkansas Coalition of Reason seeks to raise public awareness that people can be good without believing in a god. Central Arkansas CoR brings together humanistic, secular, and nontheistic organizations in our local area.
We affirm that all have the ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity. Our understanding of what is good relies on human reason and compassion, and not on theistic or supernatural beliefs.
Like anyone, we all benefit from a supportive community for friends, charity, and fostering a better understanding of secular values with our neighbors. Atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, humanists, skeptics, non-religious, lost tourists, and the confused are all welcome to join us!
It is often claimed that atheists are rare, when in fact nearly 20% of our nation’s population do not believe in a higher power. Still, atheists can on occasion feel isolated when the religious community is so organized and outspoken on issues. We deserve to be heard. Building and participating in a community is the first step in giving us that voice.
Our goal is to unite as many atheists, agnostics and freethinkers in the Central Arkansas area as possible. To enrich the community by hosting and developing informative activities and events and by encouraging and facilitating dialogue in matters of science, reason, ethics, and tolerance. To inform people of their First Amendment freedoms of and from religion, and to monitor and promote the awareness of local separation of church and state issues. To maintain a friendly, healthy relationship with other organizations, and the community.
