Declaration of Intent
We gather today in solemn dedication as atheist free minds to establish a society for the enjoyment and
advancement of Atheism in Austin, Texas. We accept and celebrate the material nature of reality which
allowed the evolutionary development of life that made possible our personal lives on humanity's home planet.
We accept and celebrate fully our intellectual, emotional, and physical humanity for the brief time that our
minds are alive.
With this Declaration of Intent, we express our desire and hope for a more sane, rational, and progressive
future for humanity. We dedicate ourselves to achieving and enjoying to the fullest possible extent the
potential for personal liberty that exists within every human. We dedicate ourselves to effectively expressing
our vision on civic and social affairs within the greater Austin area for the purpose of moving society toward
a material realist approach to human affairs.
Therefor, we dedicate ourselves to the development of a social and activist organization that will meet the needs
of Austin Atheists and provide a society to nurture our hopes. In accordance with our intent, we, the atheist
free minds of Austin, Texas dedicate ourselves to our hopes for and vision of a more realist future by establishing
Atheist Community of Austin
