the Free Thought Definition

The one thing the writers of the Freethinker definition (below) seem to have forgotten is the idea of having an open mind, the basic concept behind what made freethinking possible in the first place. We at Sioux Falls Free Thinkers reject this closed-minded rigidity of thought, so, even though we agree with and endorse much of the freethinking definition, we took the word freethinking back to its original roots and call ourselves "Free Thinkers" to symbolize open minds, free thoughts, and true Free Thinking once again.

Free Thought

Free thought is a philosophical viewpoint that believes opinions should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism, rather than authority, tradition, or other dogmas. The cognitive application of free thought is known as "freethinking", and practitioners of free thought are known as "freethinkers".

Free thought holds that individuals should not accept ideas proposed as truth without recourse to knowledge and reason. Thus, freethinkers strive to build their opinions on the basis of facts, scientific inquiry, and logical principles, independent of any logical fallacies or the intellectually limiting effects of authority, confirmation bias, cognitive bias, conventional wisdom, popular culture, prejudice, sectarianism, tradition, urban legend, and all other dogmas. Regarding religion, freethinkers hold that there is insufficient evidence to support the existence of any supernatural phenomena.
