The Freethinkers of Colorado Springs hold that beliefs must be formed on the basis of science and logic instead of emotion, authority, tradition, or dogma. Founded in 1993 in response to Colorado's Amendment Two, the Freethinkers of Colorado Springs advocate the use of reason, defend the separation of church and state, and support human rights, civil rights, tolerance, and equality for all.

How to talk to a Creationist? By Jerome Parent: July 16, 2015

How to Talk to a Creationist?

by Jerome Parent

A favorite tactic of creationists is to ask the question, “How do you know (about dinosaurs, mountain building, the Grand Canyon, or any fact you bring up)? You weren’t there.” They have a smugness about them as if this question settles the argument in their favor for ever and for always. It doesn’t, of course, but it is a question that deserves closer examination. For starters, it’s a great science question. The proper scientific response to any claim is, “How do you know? What’s the evidence?” Secondly, the question is a two-edged sword. How do creationists know God wrote the bible? They weren’t there. Biblical literalists want to argue that their beliefs are no different than those of a scientist. They want to convince the audience that all assumptions are equally valid. But the assertion of equality of assumptions is easily disproved by the following example.

Government and employers capture the employee bedroom

The stunning Burwell v. Hobby Lobby et.al. Supreme Court Decision grants "closely held" corporations newly created "religious freedoms" that trump the religious freedoms of living breathing human beings.  This creates a special class of "corporate personhood" with the power to nullify the human freedoms and Constitutional Rights of its Human employees.

Equal Justice Under Law? By Groff Schroeder: May 2014

More than 200 years ago, the founding fathers of the United States of America created a unique system of government Constitution based on Enlightenment principles and a series of Amendments called the “Bill of Rights.” Although designed to protect individual citizens from government overreach and dedicated to equality under the law, their original Constitution perpetuated slavery and guaranteed equality only to male land owners.
