I'm nearly a PhD graduate at UA. I focus on the physiology and genetics of the pancreas. My philosophical ponderings are not particularly academic but as a scientist, I feel the burden of proof is on the observer.
The purpose of Freethought Arizona is to establish, grow, and support a community of secular humanists, freethinkers, skeptics, agnostics, and atheists that is based on reason, science, and critical thinking. Our goals are to maintain separation of church and state, advance education and science, examine and discuss literature, support families, work to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and protect the civil rights of our members and others through meetings, lectures, debates, discussions, protests, letters to the editor, blogs, podcasts, broadcast appearances and any other reasonable and civil means available.
The Freethought Arizona Meetup website exists for the benefit of the members of Freethought Arizona and others who are interested in the mission and activities of the organization. Our Meetup website is solely for the purpose of promoting our mission and announcing our events. We invite you to join our meetup group, attend some of our events and meet other like-minded secular humanists.
We welcome support in any form - attending functions, volunteering, and/or financial support with paid annual memberships and donations (available onour websiteor at an event). If you’ve got ideas, energy, talent, or passion for the important secular humanist mission we have outlined above, please join us in our effort to promote reason, science, and separation of church and state.
[Please Note:] Our Meetup website is not a venue for intellectual discussions, points of disagreement, personal opinions, or arguments. Our Freethought Cafe’ (held one Sunday each month at DuVal Auditorium at 8am) is a perfect place for this. There are blogs, other groups, and avenues for discussions about religion, politics, the economy, and other stimulating subjects.
