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.

    Online Service: Existential Risk and the Future of Humanity
    Sunday December 6 2020 at Online event

    Existential threats are the defining issue of our time. Threats to our survival and long term potential are scary, but manageable if we can pull together. This week, Ryan will discuss highlights from the book: "The Precipice: Existential Risk and the Future of Humanity", which covers all the ways humanity might perish or have our potential destroyed and what we can do to stop that from happening.

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

    This is an online event hosted on Zoom. You can register for it here:

    Why did I combine these posts? Because the more good stuff we post- our really, really, really good stuff - like Sunday Service gets "lost" in the noise. Getting Accountability and Support are related.

    Online Service: Getting Happiness
    Sunday December 13 2020 at Online event

    Happiness is essential to our understanding of a good life. A good life is a happy life. More than riches, more than fame, more than immortality, people desire happiness more than anything else.</p><br></p>Happiness is essential to our concept of morality. Utilitarians believe that people should do the act that brings the greatest happiness to the greatest number of people. In other words, acts that bring a lot of people unhappiness are bad, and acts that bring a lot of happiness are good.</p><br></p>But what is happiness and should you really be pursuing it above all other things? <br></p><br></p>In this talk, we consider the psychologist Daniel Kahneman's peak-end rule which raises the question: are we really the best judges of our own happiness?</p><br></p>We also discuss philosopher Robert Nozick’s thought experiment concerning the Experience Machine and Woody Allen’s Orgasmatron. These thought experiments raise the question: should happiness really be the sole goal of life?</p>

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