Skepticism Advocacy Group of NC [S.A.G.nc] is a social group sponsored by the 'Hickory Humanist Alliance'. Events for HHA will be posted on this site along with social (specifically SAGNC) events.
"Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because if there be one he must approve of the homage of reason more than that of blindfolded fear." -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, August 10, 1787
The purpose of this group is to bring together, in a social setting, like-minded free-thinking people who find it difficult to find support within a fundamentalist dominated community. Discussions are free and open to cover a wide variety of topics. We will not meet to "bash religion", but to have open, reasonable, and honest discussions. I know all do not share my deep-seated (dare I say radical?) views of Atheism, religion being harmful to society, or “liberal” political association. This is very much accepted as I respect all opinions and do not require agreement to appreciate your input. I would like to reiterate that this group is for any, and every one and all opinions and good-natured debates are welcome. All I ask is everyone be respectful of each other. -Gene

Come join us for our 'FACTS, NOT FAITH' meeting on the 1st Sunday of EVERY month at Starbucks in Barnes and Noble Bookstore, Hickory NC.
