Freethought is absorbing the diverseness of one's physical/social environment and creating appropriate responses. It is also a social tool to advance society and the individual through critical thinking and interaction.

Yes, in normal conversation I express my atheist views and criticisms naturally and clearly but avoid confrontation. I find that the majority of people live their lives with assumption and forced conformity, specially concerning causes of vital values and the natural world.
I believed the atheist/antitheist view since my teens. I have many interest/activities and emphasize my atheist views in all of them. I consider freethinking crucial to happiness. Our culture lacks diversity of authoritative thought and needs change.
