PA Nonbelievers is a notforprofit organization created to foster a community of atheists, agnostics, and secular humanists dedicated to improving the human condition through rational inquiry and creative thinking unfettered by superstition, religion, or any form of dogma. PAN is an affiliate of American Atheists, Inc. and works in full cooperation with the Council for Secular Humanism and is a member of the CSH Affiliates. In accordance with our purpose, we seek to UNITE all nonbelievers in these common goals:
1. To EDUCATE ourselves and others in the deceptions and dangers inherent in belief inthe supernatural, and in the benefits to society, the family, and the individual that derive from rational thinking and the scientific method.
2. To PROMOTE skeptical thinking and nonbelief, and the humanist values of moral excellence, altruism, integrity, honesty, and personal responsibility.
3. To ADVOCATE for civil rights and for the principle of separation of church and state.
4. To CHALLENGE and to confront, if necessary, those who would impose their religious values or laws on others in our society.
