Freethought and Free Thought

Thinking Unenslaved So, tonight I begin my discussion into freethought with Amanda Novotny, South Dakota State Director for American Atheists and president of the Siouxland Freethinkers Group. It was actually Amanda who brought up the distinction between Freethought and “free thought”, and it sparked a great discussion and will serve as an excellent basis for upcoming discussions. I committed to doing some more research on past freethought writers and luminaries while admitting to certain biases against them that I should be working to overcome in certain terms, with the caveat that if someone was a “Freethought Luminary” with an active religious background, I cry foul. We were joined at the end of the show by Zach, a frequent participant in Thinking Unenslaved’s past incarnation. Zach says he will be here next week and even worked out a kink in his work schedule to do so. I’m already looking forward to next week, and I haven’t even selected an overall topic yet!

Please give the show a listen and feel free to join us live next week at 8pm Eastern, 5pm Pacific!
