Would you like to meet fellow atheists and make some new friends? We'd love to meet you!
You can stay up to date on our many charitable, networking, educational or just good old godless fun events at Minnesota Atheists Meetup.
You'll see we enjoy bowling, pizza parties, gaming, book clubs, cooking, educational seminars and donating our time for charities! Choose an event, let us know you're attending, then come and make some new friends.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Many of you know we're very active on Twitter, @mnatheists, but did you know we've started an instagram account? We've put a lot of work into making our account unique and interesting. It's not just another stream of atheist memes. Instead, you'll see a lot of local photography and original commentary on all kinds of topics relating to atheism.
Check it out. We're pretty sure you'll like it. When you are there why not go back and check out some of our earliest posts? Give us a few likes if you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for following us!
Give to the Max Day is over, thank you to all those who donated. Your support makes a big difference. If you didn't get time to donate on the day you can still do so right now if you'd like. Click on the link below to help!
While we do have a large team of dedicated, hard working, volunteers we do have programs that require financial support too. For example, our Atheist Talk Radio and our Atheist Outreach Educational programs.
We need to keep fighting for the separation of church and State. At the same time providing a safe community for atheists and critical thinkers to come out and participate in dialogue and education. We couldn't do it without you, our supporters and fellow atheists. Thank you!
Donate to Minnesota Atheists
Forgo the army of bell-ringers, red kettles, and faith-based charities which are too concerned with misguided bible-based morals and ideas of salvation. Consider, instead, making a financial donation to Minnesota Atheists and/or Foundation Beyond Belief who acknowledges that there's no supernatural power to make this world a better place. They know that it's up to humanity, itself, to improve this world and this life.
Minnesota Atheists has benefitted from the efforts of Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB) and their 100+ affiliates by helping bolster our volunteer service projects at a local homeless shelter, food bank, hospital, and more. Because of their ongoing support and incredible work they do locally, nationally, and globally, Minnesota Atheists set up a Razoo account for an end of the year charitable fundraiser to help support FBB so they can carry out their mission: To demonstrate humanism at its best by supporting efforts to improve this world and this life, and to challenge humanists to embody the highest principles of humanism, including mutual care and responsibility.

August Berkshire wrote and read this tribute at the memorial for Robert Nienkerk on June 29, 2015.
Nature just provided us with a brief rainstorm, so we would all have something that Bob would have appreciated: nice clean cars!
In early 1984, Madalyn Murray O’Hair and Jon Murray came to the Twin Cities, on their second or third attempt to try to form a chapter of American Atheists here. This time it worked, and a bunch of us, including Bob & Marilyn Nienkerk, started the Twin Cities Chapter of American Atheists, which became Minnesota Atheists seven years later.
