About

I once heard that Bermuda had more churches per capita than any other country in the world. Though I am not sure that this is true, dogma and religious tradition permeate our society. Bermudians for Free Thought and Humanism aspires to cater to the sometimes silent and sometimes hidden group of people that are not bound by closed mindedness and unsubstantiated mythos.  We see the advantages of logic and free thinking as a means to finding alternative solutions to Bermuda’s social issues.

Read these definitions:

Free thought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds opinions should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism, rather than authority, tradition, or other dogmas.

Humanism is a group of philosophies and ethical perspectives which emphasize the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers individual thought and evidence (rationalism, empiricism) over established doctrine or faith (fideism).
