“My use of the term ‘Freethought’ is an attempt to join the various groups together. It does not come with the negative connotations of the various other labels that have been assigned to such groups before and is therefore more accessible to the wider community. Freethought seems to be less likely to shy away from any topics, which means that in a freethought society there is no boundary other than reason and there would therefore be a wide range of interesting things that could be discussed.”
Alan Conradi is a skeptical atheist and psychology graduate who works in disability services, and he enjoys learning about and discussing belief systems, science, philosophy and much more.
