Freethought Alliance (FTA) is a 501(c) 3 organization which holds conferences, debates and other secular events in the southern California area. FTA networks with 24 lo cal secular groups in the southern California from San Diego to Fresno to Santa Barbara by sharing information about major secular events in the area. These groups are all independent and are part of the FTA only in the social networking arena. Except for Backyard Skeptics, they are not under the Freethought Alliance non-profit 501(C)3 status.
Why was FTA created? There are many paths to religious enlightenment – Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, and many others. Some of these religions could be described as worshiping the same god, and some clearly can’t.
But when it comes to the non-religious, there are also different paths people are
taking with their lives: atheists, agnostics, skeptics, humanists, naturalists, and
others. But are they really following a different path? Or is it really the same path
with different names? Each of these groups is looking at the world through the
lenses of critical thinking, rationality, and science, and excluding from their lives
the influences of mysticism, superstition, pseudo-science and all else that can not
be proven by scientific inquiry.
The Freethought Alliance has been created as a way to bring all such people
together under a single umbrella to support the secular community by sharing event information with one another.
Our mission: To offer a place for people of non-belief to gather, discuss cultural
and political issues and to improve the quality of life for the non-religious. To
promote dialogue between the religious and non-religious through sponsoring debates and conferences in southern California.
