SKP Freethinkers

A Birds Of a Feather group (BOF) of Escapees RV Club

What is a Freethinker?

freethinker n. One who has rejected authority and dogma, especially in his religious thinking, in favor of rational inquiry and speculation.

-The American Heritage Dictionary

free-think-er n. A person who forms opinions about religion on the basis of reason, independently of tradition, authority, or established belief. Freethinkers include atheists, agnostics and rationalists.

No one can be a freethinker who demands conformity to a bible, creed, or messiah. To the freethinker, revelation and faith are invalid, and orthodoxy is no guarantee of truth.

- Freedom From Religion Foundation

"Freethought is the application of critical thinking and logic to all areas of human experience, and the rejection of supernatural and authoritarian beliefs."

- Council for Secular Humanism

See "What Is A Freethinker?"  for a more complete explanation.

Social Objectives of our BOF

Our BOF has social objectives beyond finding each other for the purpose of making like minded friends. Many SKPs are reluctant to "come out of the closet" as non-believers in our religion dominated culture and this BOF provides information, support, and community for those SKPs.

We are in various stages of shedding religious and irrational beliefs. The sharing of knowledge between members at different stages can be helpful to some, rewarding to others, and interesting to all. And when we make friends here, our BOF helps us stay in touch even when we are traveling. Escapees are always traveling!

Political Objectives

The freedom of religion, the separation of state and church, and the general maintenance of our secular government and society is of paramount importance to most freethinkers. Unrelated political topics are discussed in our forums designated for such purposes.
