What is Freethought?
Robin Zucker, a Unitarian Universalist minister, embraces a creed-free, dogma-free path of making meaning. Robin finds that theists and humanists alike can be freethinkers. John Hooper, a retired research scientist, seeks to gain an understanding of the world without supernatural assumptions. John holds that this is what makes freethought free.
