South Carolina Atheists

Connect with fellow freethinkers and skeptics in the palmetto state. It's difficult to be a religious minority in the bible belt, and we need to reach out to each other and let each other know we're here!

Welcome, Philip! Western end of the state, here. Poke around, share some stories of religion (or not) and it's influence in our fair state.

Hello from the Myrtle Beach area. I just came across this site today while wondering the net. Glad to see I'm not alone in this state.

Well, Alana, if you go, I hope it works out well for you. It doesn't mean you HAVE to leave our group. Hey, you lived here so that makes you an SC atheist even after you leave.

Alana, I think it's only fair that if you escape, you must take at least fundie up north with you...

I have actually been stationed at Fort Hood, TX and so haven’t experienced any discrimination recently from SC but being from SC I can tell you that I have experience some discrimination particularly in the work place and school.

good to see more of our home state folk joining the group. When I get off my lazy ass tomorrow, I'll post up the Greenville Evolution meetup group's agenda for this month. It's Thursday night at the downtown library.

Ah, Gage Hall. I used to play guitar at the Sunday nite "coffee house" there, organized by a local lawyer named Edmund. He was a master of some of the old school folk acoustic instruments. I believe he started a local folk music society a few years later...

Speaking of local reactions to real live atheists in the world, I got some funny looks from my fellow cast members when I told them I was a humanist while playing the bible-quoting Brady in Inherit The Wind recently. Most of them didn't seem to actually grasp the point of the play at all, and were sure their side won...

For Charleston people, Secular Humanists of the Low Country meet monthly from September to May and are usually located at Gage Hall on Archdale street in downtown Charleston. I don't get to the meetings due to COPD and the necessity of staying away from groups but these are some good people who have interesting speakers and thought provoking discussion.

Oh, and please don't forget the "In Reason We Trust" license plate. I sure do hate never seeing another one on the road.
