Welcome to CFI-Los Angeles

4773 Hollywood Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90027 

The Center for Inquiry-Los Angeles offers an opportunity to put your principles into practice by joining other rationalists to work for positive change in society. In addition, the Los Angeles Center sponsors social events for freethinkers as well as intellectual programming, and assists with campus outreach.

CFI provides an ethical alternative to religious and paranormal worldviews. In this time of rising religiosity, anti-intellectualism and political turmoil on ethical issues, it is critical that rationalists and freethinkers join together to protect civil liberties, defend reason, and work toward increasing scientific literacy.

Notable skeptic and science advocate Donald Prothero has now set his sights on E.T.s.
