Group Description

This is a group for freethinkers, humanists, rationalists, secularists, atheists, agnostics, skeptics, critical thinkers, debunkers and the like in the Costa del Sol, Spain. (Costa del Sol includes Estepona, Marbella, Fuengirola, Mijas, Benalmadena, Torremolinos, Malaga, Rincon de la Victoria, Velez, Nerja and other places nearby.)

For those who are unsure of the definition of freethought, here is the opening description from Wikipedia -
"Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds opinions should be formed on the basis of science, logic, and reason, and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, or other dogmas. The cognitive application of freethought is known as "freethinking," and practitioners of freethought are known as "freethinkers".

"Freethought holds that individuals should not accept ideas proposed as truth without recourse to knowledge and reason. Thus, freethinkers strive to build their opinions on the basis of facts, scientific inquiry, and logical principles, independent of any logical fallacies or the intellectually limiting effects of authority, confirmation bias, cognitive bias, conventional wisdom, popular culture, prejudice, sectarianism, tradition, urban legend, and all other dogmas. Regarding religion, freethinkers hold that there is insufficient evidence to support the existence of supernatural phenomena."

This Yahoo group started life as Costa del Sol Humanists but the title has now been changed to support the group Costa del Sol Freethinkers which meets on the second Friday of each month usually in Torremolinos. It also operates in parallel with the Facebook page www.facebook.com/groups/costadelsolfreethinkers/
