Ours is a long standing Humanist organization that started with Warren Allen Smith, a student of Corliss Lamont, at Columbia University. John Dewey was a treasured member. We claim a special connection since Corliss Lamont is the author of “The Philosophy of Humanism”, “Illusion of Immortality” and “Freedom of Choice Affirmed”.
Our meetings invite philosophical discussion that lead inevitably to questions of ethical responsibility in matters of patriotism and politics. Corliss Lamont was a champion of Civil Liberties, and “The Peolple’s Right to Know”. We invite your participation. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more.
The Brights is a world-wide non-supernaturalist constituency that neither dictates a doctrine nor charges for membership. It is a broad, inclusive world-view that recognizes reason and mindfulness as an evolutionary progression. Brights are either independent thinkers or members of the many other secular, freethought, pro-science, atheist, agnostic and humanist organizations, providing a non-competitive umbrella to our community of reason. For a list of enthusiastic brights and to officially register as a Bright go to our website or contact Charles Alexander Zorn at zorn@ bway.net.
New York City Skeptics promotes critical thinking, skeptical inquiry, and science education in the New York City metropolitan area. Our activities include co-sponsoring the Northeast Conference on Science & Skepticism (NECSS), hosting a bi-monthly Public Lecture Series, and sponsoring the New York City chapters of Drinking Skeptically and SkeptiCamp.
“Ethical” is a welcoming home for humanists. We’ve provided non-theistic services in a congregational setting since 1876. Join us in celebrating life’s joys, supporting one another through life’s crises, and working together to make the world a better place. We offer lectures, films, discussion groups, music, and much, much more. www.nysec.org .
The Secular Coalition for New York expresses the viewpoint of secular New Yorkers by lobbying at all levels of government and by promoting a secular viewpoint in the courts. We work with humanist, secular, atheist and other groups within New York to promote the separation of church and state and to end religious privilege. We are a chapter of the Secular Coalition of America and we work with them and other national groups to assure our viewpoint is expressed at the national level. E-mail(NewYork@secular.org.).
Okay, you’re an atheist/agnostic – now what? Secular humanism is a philosophy of life guided by reason and science, free from religious and secular dogmas, promoting human happiness, freedom and understanding on this earth, in this life. The Secular Humanist Society of New York (SHSNY) is a leader in the NYC area freethought community.
We publish PIQUE, a lively, literate newsletter, organize lectures by leading scholars, scientists and authors, and every month debate ideas at our Book Club and our Great Lectures evenings, break bread at Sunday Brunch, and enjoy burgers and beers at Movie Night. Enjoy life with us — join us.
Reasonable New York is a consortium of local reason-based organizations and people working together to increase awareness of secular-minded movements throughout the Greater New York area. We aim to inform New Yorkers that there is a community of people who share a rational basis for their worldviews, who attend intellectual public lectures, enjoy philosophy discussions, and socialize. We invite you to visit our various member groups, to contact any of those in which you are interested, and check out our calendar to attend gatherings of any of our organizations, many of which are free. Some of these events are also posted on our shared meetup site.
