Hello, I've just moved here from Miami, FL. I've been an Atheist for 10 years. The local American Family Radio stations are advocates for a Fascist Religious Dictatorship. I'd like to write a weekly column on "church fascism." Judy
Are you looking for an opportunity to meet other folks with a secular lifestyle who label themselves something like skeptic, humanist, atheist, or agnostic? Well then pull up a chair and introduce yourself!
The goal of Conway Freethinkers is to provide like-minded individuals a chance to get together and socialize. Building and participating in a community is the first step to removing the feeling of isolation and getting our message heard. Each month we have casual dinner meetings, social gatherings and strive to get the word out about science-related events that our members may find interesting.
“Science related?”, you may ask, “what does that have to do with atheism”? Well generally speaking freethinkers maintain that opinions should be formed on the basis of science, logic, and reason, and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, popularity or other dogmas. For many folks this leads to a secular lifestyle. We also welcome people who recently left the church, families who are looking for an alternative to organized religion, and those who are totally dis-interested in religion.
If you are a fan of the works of Carl Sagan, James Randi, Douglas Adams, the Skeptics Guide to the Universe, and/or Mythbusters, then you've found your people!
