Welcome atheists, agnostics, skeptics — you are all welcome here! At Seattle Atheist Church, we call ourselves an atheist church because you will never hear anything supernatural promoted from the podium.

Join us for our Sunday Service each and every week in Seattle.

    Sunday Service - Intelligence: What Is It & Are We Really the Best At It?
    Sunday September 22 2019 at University Heights Center, Room 209

    This week's speakers (Allorra and Maren) are giving a talk about intelligence.

    Hi! I'm Allorra! Maren and I have collaborated to give a talk about intelligence. In particular, where the word intelligence came from, when we started quantifying it, how we did that and if anyone has come up with anything (socially and scientifically). After that we will give little snippets of the possiblity that maybe humans are just among intelligence and not the rulers of it!

    Afterwards we'll have a group discussion about the talk and whatever else comes to mind.

    There will be complimentary coffee and snacks. Parking is free at the University Heights Center.

    Hope to see you there!

    Sunday Service: The Robber's Cave Experiment
    Sunday October 6 2019 at University Heights Center, Room 209

    This week's speaker (Jack) is giving a talk about The Robber's Cave Experiment, presenting material from LessWrong. In this study "Intergroup Conflict and Cooperation: The Robbers Cave Experiment" by Sherif, Harvey, White, Hood, and Sherif (1954/1961), the experimental subjects were 22 boys between 5th and 6th grade, selected from 22 different schools in Oklahoma City, of stable middle-class Protestant families, doing well in school, median IQ 112. They were as well-adjusted and as similar to each other as the researchers could manage. The experiment, conducted in the bewildered aftermath of World War II, was meant to investigate the causes—and possible remedies—of intergroup conflict.

    Afterwards we'll have a group discussion about the talk and whatever else comes to mind.

    There will be complimentary coffee and snacks. Parking is free at the University Heights Center.
