What we're about

Freethinkers of Colorado Springs was formed in 1993 to support and create community for non-religious people in the area. From that evolved a group embracing Humanist philosophies too. And we have members who embrace titles like atheist, agnostic, christian, jew, spiritual, and others. We are focused on educating ourselves and the community about church state separation, the right to practice or avoid religion, and the power and promise of reason and science. We are eager to share with all atheists, humanist, skeptics and secularists of all races, nationalities and backgrounds.

Our goal is the develop a community of people to share life's journey with. We therefore ask that people who want to join our group use their real name. A first name would be fine, particularly if implies, or at least suggests, whatever gender you might present as. A name with a middle initial , or last name initial, could be used too. Or like most of our members, you could use your real and full name.

Also, we ask a couple of questions of people who want to join. We will look at those answers while considering if we want to add you to our group. We ask that you answer those questions honestly and with meaning. After you have joined, you can go back and change your answers if you wish.

You can learn more about our group at www.FreethinkersCS.org , or at Facebook.com/Freethinkers and Humanists of Colorado Springs.

Freethinkers Virtual Secular Sunday group discussion

Link visible for attendees

Our Sunday morning Virtual discussions have moved beyond just a short term replacement for our restaurant meetings. Many of us think it should continue as a central part of the remaining Freethinkers of CS program mix.
We usually have 10 to 15 people. Few of them bother to post their intent on Meetup anymore. Recent ages ranged from 18 to 75 ( heavy on the older end). Most are X-christian Freethinkers, but some were raised free of religion. We occasionally have self proclaimed christians who attend,and they are very welcome. We occasionally invite special guest and allow them to take 15 to 20 minutes to discuss their issue before melding into a question and answer period. On March 6 we had a guest from Ukraine who shared his experiences and observations about the troubles in that part of the world. And we occasionally have political leaders and national Freethought advocates as our guests.
We follow a free flow of conversation model, in a gently moderated discussion. Sometimes members arrive with a passion to discuss a news event, or a religious earthquake that just rocked our nation or community. We start there and let the conversation direct itself.
We do insist on respect for other members, not necessarily their opinions. And their right to speak their mind. We'll try to get a new-comer to talk as much as they will. We all love new stories. But we ask that people yield the flow when they run out of material and notice others engaging in side conversations.
Feel free to drop in a few minutes early if you would like. There are usually a couple of early arrivals there.
• What to bring An Open mind and a willingness to LISTEN.

Hello all,
Freethinker’s Women’s Group meeting 11/16/21 6PM

It is great to see the enthusiasm! There are some concerned about the COVID rise in our area and others who are finding it challenging to get out in the evening, so we are going to try a hybrid model for this month's meeting.
