Introduction

The purpose of this blog is to answer the question: What does this topic have to do with the Community of Reason or freethought in general? These posts are not intended to be summaries of our programs but rather as a way for members and non-members to understand how each talk is relevant.

A simple rejection of theistic religion is not a complete philosophy or worldview, but rather only part of the picture. Most freethinkers have a more complete view of the world and sometimes this worldview has a name and sometimes it does not. When it does, it most often is Secular Humanism or something similar. Not all of our members are Humanist and perhaps not everyone will agree each and every post on this blog. However, Humanism is so popular among our members that our programs are chosen with Humanist values in mind. Therefore, to understand the relevancy of our programs it helps to understand Humanism (see http://communityofreason.net/philosophies/humanism/humanism.php).

Comments about these postings and about the programs themselves are enabled. Please stay on topic and be as nice as you would in person. We reserve the right to remove posts representing incivility of any kind (including spam). Feel free to ask questions or to make specific suggestions for future Sunday program topics or speakers.
