Freethought is the notion that our opinions should be built upon logical reasoning from natural experience and evidence, not from dogma, superstition, authority, or tradition.October 12 is Freethought Day.

Happy Freethought Day! My latest piece at Columbia FAVs is about Freethought Day. It features a bit about Freethought and some history. And if you happen to read it after Freethought Day has already passed don’t worry, every day is a good day for a little Freethought.
