The Society of Reason, based in the Capital Region of New York State, believes that while superstition, religious dogma, and other irrational belief systems are dangerous tools of manipulation and power to be rejected by critical thinkers, there are inherent human needs for community and self-examination that should not be rejected along with them.
 
Our mission is twofold: First, to create a community for skeptics, freethinkers, atheists, naturalists, agnostics, brights, and any other adherents of critical thought; and second, to explore and refine tools for critical introspection and self-improvement that avoid entanglement in superstition and religious dogma.
