Among AIK's objectives are the promotion and practice of "open, rational, and scientific examination of the universe and our place in it", and "to advocate that ethics and morality be meaningfully based on rational and humanistic ideals and values".
The society believes that "human beings are capable of being ethical and moral without religion or God."
The news of Mahiga stepping down from his role with AIK garnered praise on social media.
Julie J Bird wrote, "It is the power of God. Stronger than anything else in the whole universe."
Another user tweeted, "Every knee, shall bow and every tongue shall confess, that Jesus, Christ is lord. Amen!"
And Laura RW congratulated Mahiga on his decision, adding "All glory to God in the highest."
