What we're about

This group is for anyone who is intellectually humble, doesn't take themselves too seriously, and considers themselves a freethinker. We like having fun while challenging our ideas/beliefs as well as the ideas/beliefs of others. Unlike on social media, here there are no taboo topics. My only rule is to respect people, not ideas. Please join if you enjoy discussing epistemology, ethics, psychology, sociology, theology etc., or simply enjoy food and drinks.

If you have kids feel free to bring them as well.

We will meet in the Burke Lake Ice Cream Parlor parking lot by the side walk. The duration of the hike is approximately 2 hours at a leisurely pace of 2 - 2 1/2 miles per hour. Note that admission to Burke Lake Park is free for Fairfax County residents at all times. On the weekends April through late October, there is a $10.00 a car fee for those from outside of Fairfax County. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early if possible. We will be starting the introductions at 10:10am and leaving promptly at 10:15am. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water.

Ladies' Night (making Stone Soup!)

Calling all freethinkin' ladies to my house for making Stone soup, enjoy the Autumn with warm soup, chatting, and having a fun time. I will provide the soup base. Please bring something ready (pre cooked) to go into the soup (ex: vegetable, cheese, meat, croutons) or to go with the soup (salads, nice crusty bread or crackers) and a separate side dish to share with everyone. Other things you can bring: drinks you enjoy and games you like to play. ***This event is open only to Freethinking women that have attended more than one Freethinkers event (i.e. I know you). For anyone else, you are welcome to try our other Freethinker events. For those that RSVP, we will send you a message with details regarding the event such as Sue's address and other information. Looking forward to seeing you!
