The FSM's goal is to provide a fun and friendly social environment for freethinkers of every kind in Columbia, SC and the surrounding Midlands area. We are a home to atheists, agnostics, humanists, and anyone who maintains a healthy, skeptical mindset. Also, we strive to promote secularism, skepticism, and humanism and a positive opinion of freethinkers through community outreach, education, and charity.

FSM provides many benefits to our members & community:

  • Regular social events
  • Community support
