The club provides a medium for the inquiry of atheism, agnosticism, non-religious belief and secularism at the University of Guelph. Our main purpose is to provide a community for this group, allowing them to experience the many secondary benefits of being part of a church or religious organization, such as social events, opportunities for charity and community involvement, that they might not otherwise have as non-believers. We welcome any students who are interested in exploring: their beliefs, the presented subjects or taking part in our events.
Other goals of the Atheos club are; to dispel any misconceptions about the ethical, political, and social implications of atheism, agnosticism and secularism; to ‘put a face’ on atheism, and to explore the various belief systems that exist. In furtherance of these goals, we hold a series of events (movies, talks, debates etc) while maintaining the importance of religious tolerance.
We have weekly meetings on Wednesdays 5:30-7pm in Mack 313.
The greek word Atheos “was derogatively applied to anyone thought to believe in false gods, no gods, or doctrines that stood in conflict with established religions.” (Wikipedia)
