What we're about

What we're about

We are a group of Freethinkers, Humanists, Atheists, Agnostics, Scientists, Skeptics, Non-theists, Naturalists, Rationalists, Secularists and supporters of sound science and critical thinking who ride all types of motor scooters, motorbikes and motorcycles on the track, street and dirt.

The purpose of this Meetup group is to get together for rides, conversation, and other motorcycle-related events. There are no fees or dues required for membership however, we must pay meetup.com substantial annual fees to keep this Meetup website. We support this through our t-shirt sales and request that you become a Member In Good Standing. Our group t-shirts are available for ladies and gentlemen for $19.99 + shipping. Contact Paul Andor Nagy to order: ( http://www.meetup.com/FreeThought-Motorcyclists-of-Portland-Oregon-and-PNW/photos/25204442/ )

Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds that opinions should be formed on the basis of science, logic, and reason, and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, or any other dogma. Freethought holds that individuals should neither accept nor reject ideas proposed as truth without recourse to knowledge and reason. Thus, freethinkers strive to build their opinions on the basis of facts. Applied to religion, freethinkers have generally held that, given presently-known facts, established scientific theories, and logical principles, there is insufficient evidence to support the existence of supernatural phenomena. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freethought )

What is NOT a Freethinker? Holding nonconformist or contrarian views does not automatically make one a freethinker. Being anti-religious does not automatically make one a freethinker. Identifying oneself primarily as a member of a group, rather than as an individual is incompatible with freethought. The same goes for membership in any group, club, or organization that demands unquestioning loyalty and commitment without allowing the individual to consider what is morally right or wrong. Examples of such groups are: 1% motorcycle clubs, patch clubs, MCs, certain independent or private militias, many organizations based on birth status, such as race or gender, and several religious sects.

We lend a helping hand to other motorcyclists and to other world citizens because it is the right thing to do, not because we expect any reward in this life or after this life.

We support Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Thought, Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Religion, Freedom From Religion, Separation of Church and State, Separation of Church and Business, Separation of Church and Education.

We endorse the pursuit of education, ethical alternatives, mathematics, science, logic, reason, evolution, free inquiry, technology and philosophy because they are points on the highway to freedom.

We live this life the best that we can and for the most we can because, this is the only life we will live.

We care for our Earth because it is the only Earth we will ever live on.

We give thanks to science and to our ancestors for developing metallurgy and the wheel (invented in the Neolithic Period or Stone Age). We give thanks to the prehistoric zooplankton and algae which gave their lives so that we may utilize their fossil fuel in the most enjoyable way. We give thanks to the engineers and scientists who make our motorcycles faster and more reliable. We give thanks to the doctors and nurses who heal our injured bodies when we test our human limitations and mortality.

..... and on the seventh day, we go riding!

Breakfast meetup

Kenton Station

02/10/2019: So I screwed up the scheduling. It's important to know that it wasn't my first time and it won't be the last! Six of us showed up this morning for the unscheduled Pre-OneMotoShow breakfast, thanks to Pat, Lawrence, Sean, Sylvia, and Peter. Maybe we all need help in learning how to read a calendar, or maybe we just felt like getting up early on a very cold, Sunday morning for Bloody Marys. Our scheduled meeting for 02/17 is now back to our regular time of 11:00 AM, so that we can enjoy congress with the significant-other as prescribed by Christopher Hitchens. Previous post: For this Sunday only, we are scheduling earlier, at 10AM, so that we can finish up and ride over to The One Motorcycle Show. We are scheduling a breakfast meetup monthly. We are scheduling it now for the same location, the Kenton Station has good food, a motorcycle parked in the window, and permits minors.
