We sponsored presentations every month. You can listen to most of these presentations, right here on the web. Go to this page to see a list of our previous presentations and listen to some stimulating exchanges.
The First Friday Freethinkers meets on the first Friday of every month at 10 am at the church for the free exchange of ideas in the fields of religion, morality, ethics and justice. The group got its start in 2007 and has been hosting one or two presentations a month from some of Sarasota's leading thinkers and movers.
Society benefits when orthodoxy is eliminated and people are free to believe what they want and to speak their minds openly. Please join us. We'd love to hear your views.
Discussions center around a specific topic and usually last an hour, with an additional half-hour devoted to questions, answers and discussion.
For those who wish to expore the concept of freethinkers more fully a comprehensive definition of a freethinker can be found at the site of the Freedom from Religion Foundation.
If you're interested in finding out if you're a freethinker, or how to become one, Scott Berkun has some advice for you to think about at http://www.scottberkun.com/essays/how-to-be-a-free-thinker/
Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds that opinions should be formed on the basis of science, logic, and reason, and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, or any other dogma. The cognitive application of freethought is known as freethinking, and practitioners of freethought are known as freethinkers
