Backyard Skeptics is the largest skeptic/atheist organization in Orange County, California. We are active in advocating the position of non-belief and the support of church and state separation. We are a active community of non-theists, skeptics, atheists, humanists and evidencialists (we need empirical evidence of any claim to accept it as true). Besides our entertaining and enlightening monthly meetings (available to see on line HERE) , we also organize entertaining events such as field trips to science-oriented events, movie nights, solstice parties, Skeptics ot the pub nights, camping trips (see pixs below), special dinner show events and local debates. We also sponsor Orange County’s only Freethought Conference in May.
See our MEETUP page for a all the interesting events we offer for the non-theist. We’ve had over 388 past meetups! You can join any one (or more) of our six chapters: Central OC (the main group) South OC, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Arcadia and Skeptics at the Pub.
Our News sections are updated almost daily – Science, Politics, Church-State, Evolution, Climate Change and my favorite- Really Crazy News. Check them out.
If you agnostic, atheist, or just on the fence about religion and looking for a community of non-theists, you’re welcome to join our group.
Please consider contributing to our cause to make this a better world by expanding the influence non-theists have. Our voluntary membership is $20 bi-annual or only $4 per month donation HERE. This helps us support our annual conference in May, webpage costs, solstice parties and more. See our donation page to make your contribution. We are a 501(3)(C) organization and all donations are tax-deductible.
