free-think-er n. A person who forms opinions about religion on the basis of reason, independently of tradition, authority, or established belief. Freethinkers are naturalistic. Truth is the degree to which a statement corresponds with reality. Reality is limited to that which is directly perceivable through our natural senses or indirectly ascertained through the proper use of reason.
We tend to be atheists, agnostics, humanists and secularists although people of faith are welcome to join us in our lively discussions of how freethought can counter dogma and promote a realistic, healthy, and compassionate world view. Hope to see you at the next Meetup!
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.
