The official blog of University of Missouri Skeptics, Atheists, Secular Humanists, & Agnostics
Welcome to the official MU SASHA blog!
Please join our group on Facebook.
MU SASHA stands for University of Missouri Skeptics, Atheists, Secular Humanists, & Agnostics. SASHA is the only expressly secular/skeptic group at the University of Missouri. We are also open to (& strongly encourage interaction from!) people of all faiths & religious backgrounds.
MU SASHA meets every Tuesday from 6-7 PM in Ellis Auditorium on the University of Missouri-Columbia campus. Ellis Auditorium is on the ground floor of Ellis Library, just through the double-doors on the west side of the building (facing Speakers’ Circle). Here is a link to Mizzou’s Ellis Auditorium web page, and here is a link to Google directions to the library.
Our mission is threefold:
A. To promote to the highest degree the separation of church and state.
B. To promote a healthy and respectable image of the atheist and freethinking community in our area and around the world by means of philanthropic works, dispensary of knowledge, and organized debate and discussion.
C. To offer to students at MU and people in the local area their first opportunity to hear a freethinking opinion on life, reality, and rationality other than that of the religious organizations on the MU Campus.
