Free Thought and Secularism in General

Note: A large number of the resources on this page came from the Community of Reason: A Center for Free Thought, located in Kansas City.

The Secular Web
The Secular Web is owned and operated by Internet Infidels, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization dedicated to defending and promoting a naturalistic worldview on the Internet. Naturalism is the “hypothesis that the natural world is a closed system” in the sense that “nothing that is not a part of the natural world affects it.” As such, “naturalism implies that there are no supernatural entities,” such as gods, angels, demons, ghosts, or other spirits, “or at least none that actually exercises its power to affect the natural world.”

American Ethical Union
Description from the site: “Welcome to the Ethical Leaders Network site, a project of the National Leaders Council of the American Ethical Union. Here, you’ll find information from Leaders of the Ethical Culture movement about Ethical Culture, Ethical Humanism, both now and through the movement’s history. We are just beginning to create the content for this site, so explore what’s here and come back later for more.”

Center for Naturalism
Naturalism.Org, a production of the Center for Naturalism, is a resource for those interested in worldview naturalism and its personal and social implications.

World Union of Deists
Description from the site: “What is the basis of Deism? Reason and nature. We see the design found throughout the known universe and this realization brings us to a sound belief in a Designer or God.

Is Deism a form of atheism? No. Atheism teaches that there is no God. Deism teaches there is a God. Deism rejects the “revelations” of the “revealed” religions but does not reject God.”

The mission of the Secular Student Alliance is to organize, unite, educate, and serve students and student communities that promote the ideals of scientific and critical inquiry, democracy, secularism, and human-based ethics. We envision a future in which nontheistic students are respected voices in public discourse and vital partners in the secular movement’s charge against irrationality and dogma.

Camp Quest provides an educational adventure shaped by fun, friends and freethought, featuring science, natural wonder and humanist values.

Values we teach: integrity, empathy, creativity, critical thinking, and community.
