A club for Atheists, Agnostics, and Secular Students of Berkeley

Students for A Nonreligious Ethos at Berkeley
New Semester!
Written by Haley Kovacs   

SANE meetings will be starting soon! We haven't heard back yet about a room location, but meetings will be Tuesdays at 7pm as usual. I'll post here as soon as I know the date and location of the first meeting.

In the meantime, join our community on Facebook! Search for "SANE at Berkeley".

Shit Berkeley Students Say, part 1
Written by Haley Kovacs   

Quotes from Berkeley students, in our adventures tabling on Sproul:


"How can you not believe in God? God is the whole earth, God is the sun, GOD IS THE TREES MAN."


Sierra: "Abortion is very safe."

"'Feminists' for Life": "I've talked to a lot of women though who got abortions at Planned Parenthood. When they had complications, Planned Parenthood just transported them to a local hospital. Then when they died, it wasn't reported as an abortion death."

Sierra: "So...wait. You can talk to ghosts?"


"Why don't you like Islam?"

"For one, the Koran treats women as less than men." *References verses where women's inferiority is explicitly quantified"

"You're so eurocentric! You don't understand that we have a different gender paradigm."


"Can I pray for you?"

"Depends. Are you going to pray out loud, right here?"

"oh...you don't want me to do that?"


Concern Troll: I can define the word 'god.'

Sierra: Ok. Go ahead.

Concern Troll: If you hold a magnet over a person's brain, they'll have a sense of god. That's god - how can you say that doesn't exist?

Sierra: That's not 'god.' That's a short-circuit... in their temporal lobe. You even said it was induced.

Concern Troll: But still people have the sense of god!


Jesus Dude: The Incas practiced human sacrifice.

Sierra: Isn't your religion founded on a human sacrifice?

Jesus Dude: no...uh...it's different, I need to find a word besides 'sacrifice' for Jesus.


Jesus Gal: "If I didn't believe in God, then I might murder and rape. I'd be a sociopath."

Sierra: "Then you're already a sociopath."



This is my promise that the site will become active again.
Written by Haley Kovacs   

Hello all, this is Haley, the new(ish) SANE President. I am thinking that I want to use this website much more frequently, and transform it into more of a blog in addition to a place where information about meetings and events are posted.

I will write many of the articles myself on topics relating to atheism, including politics, feminism, philosophy, and science. Other times I'll post articles of interest, and hopefully invite guest bloggers from the club to have their say.

I'm not promising that I'll update everyday, but I will at least update as often as I can and see how it goes.

Hi All -

We'll be meeting tomorrow, 11-16-10, in 206 Dwinele, at 7pm. We'll be talking about the silliness of Zeitgeist and the importance of sticking to actual facts, even when the alternative is funnier.

We'll be meeting tomorrow in Dwinele, 206. We'll be discussing the idea of religious freedom in various situations and what merits the idea has in any given sector: e.g., freedom to worship freely, freedom to have your children rely on faith-healers, etc.

Most importantly, there will be delicious cupcakes.
