Bringing local freethinkers together for community, support, and action. We are humanists, skeptics, agnostics, and atheists. Above all, we strive to be ethical, moral, and good human beings - skeptical of dogma, promoters of reason, science, and free-thought. Public truths through public revelation, "spirituality" through meaning, nature, friendship, and the arts. Cooperation with all those seeking to make a more delightful, sustainable, and humane world.

free·think·er [free-thing-ker], noun
a person who forms opinions on the basis of reason, independent of authority or tradition, especially a person whose religious opinions differ from established belief.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Also relevant (from the Wikipedia page on freethought):
"Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds opinions should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism and not authority, tradition, or other dogmas. The cognitive application of freethought is known as 'freethinking,' and practitioners of freethought are known as 'freethinkers.'"

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
