Science Sunday


      Join us one Sunday a month to discuss the week's science news and watch relevant documentaries.

The UNCG Atheists, Agnostics & Skeptics host these meetings in order to encourage scientific literacy in the broader community, and to celebrate how modern science continues to shape our lives.

     Check out our Events Calendar for specific dates/times.



"There is no other species on Earth that does science. It is, so far, entirely a human invention, evolved by natural selection in the cerebral cortex for one simple reason: it works. It is not perfect. It can be misused. It is only a tool. But it is by far the best tool we have, self-correcting, ongoing, applicable to everything. It has two rules. First: there are no sacred truths; all assumptions must be critically examined; arguments from authority are worthless. Second: whatever is inconsistent with the facts must be discarded or revised. We must understand the Cosmos as it is and not confuse how it is with how we wish it to be."
