Morongo Basin Freethought is a local group located in the Morongo Basin.
Morongo Basin Freethought is a local group of enlightened freethinkers (Skeptics, Agnostics, Secular Humanists, non-believers, atheists and others who identify as freethinkers) from the Morongo Basin area (Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, Yucca Mesa, Burns Canyon, Pioneertown, Landers, Flamingo Heights, Joshua Tree, Twentynine Palms, MCAGCC 29 Palms, Wonder Valley, areas) who believe there are many issues that need to be discussed, parsed and solutions created. This is a much different approach then what is taken by most Americans.We also believe that the separation of church and state is very important and that when decisions are made that affect the public as a whole, rationale and reason should always trump prayer and religion.
Morongo Basin Freethought is a place for those who are tired of intrusion by religion and who may even be questioning the existence of a god to feel safe around open-minded people and to provide them a venue to discuss their feelings and to have a great time doing it while making new friends. The goal of our group is to minimize the role that religion has in the public domain and to promote the fact that this is your one life and there is no afterlife so make the best of it by making our world a better place.
We also intend to be involved in community activities and to create an awareness of our group so that others who need this type of group can participate. Unlike religion-based groups, we are not trying to convert believers, we are providing a venue for others who, like us, don’t follow religion-based practices.
While our current activity consists of Breakfast Socratic Discussion, as the membership grows, we would like to have a pub night, dinner discussion and other fun activities.
