Our Vision and Mission

Our vision is of a society where reason and evidence guide individual and civic principles, and where none suffer prejudice for a commitment to rationality. Our mission is to nurture a community in the Miami Valley that values secular humanism, promotes and preserves freethought in the public square, provides supportive fellowship, and engages in humanitarian good works.

Making a Difference

Freethought Dayton supports a number of community related and charitable activities. Freethought Dayton members weekly volunteer at the Food Bank of Dayton where we sort and repack donated food. We have adopted a highway (a portion of 675). We support the annual "Light the Night" fundraiser, held by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We also give blood as part of regular Bleed & Feed events.

Quote of the Day by Robert

Yourall embarrassing: You could not be more wrong. I was brought up a Christian for many years. The Bible, properly read, is the greatest tool atheists have at their disposal. Feel free to believe in Jehovah, Yahweh, Jesus, Zeus, Wotan, Thor, Aphrodite, Posiden, Amon-Ra, Eku, or the Great Ju Ju of the mountain. Whatever makes you comfortable. There are countless others I have not mentioned here. None of these are any more real than Santa, the flying spagetti monster, the celestial teapot, or the invisible pink unicorn. There is an equal lack of evidence for all of them. The onus is on you to PROVE the existence of your invisible imaginary friend — not the other way around. – Robert

Quote of the Day by Unknown

I have read the majority of the Old Testament. I must say that I am thouroughly shocked and disgusted by the performance of all the characters– especially God. – Unknown
