One could say that Alistair Crowley was a Freethinker, and I guess he was, in a way- but he worshiped his own defecations!
Subject: Re: [humanism-174] definitions of freethinker
I agree with you that we should not focus on defining ourselves; having
to work within a definition of what we are stifles what can do or say. I
would say that having some clear, concise definition is useful so far as to
explain to the uninitiated who we are and what we hope to achieve.
I think we should use these definitions as a reference and come up with our own. And we should make it clear that freethinking demands only an open mind- not one with any particular religious or non-religious, political or social barriers.
