About Atheist Freethinkers

Our organization Libres penseurs athées — Atheist Freethinkers (LPA-AFT) is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and grew out of a committee which helped organize an atheist-humanist convention in Montreal in October of 2010. For purely practical reasons, we are a bilingual (French & English) organization.

We are atheists. Critical thought and science lead us to the conclusion that gods, demons, reincarnation, the immortal soul and other supernatural beliefs are childish fictions. We value reason, knowledge and the material, intellectual and moral advancement of humanity. Our philosophy is materialist: there is no soul associated with the body, and as for the mind or intellect it too is material because based on neuronal processes. We are moral beings, constantly evolving and responsible for ourselves, as is the humanity to which we belong. We promote secularism and reject any religious involvement in civil institutions.

We are convinced of the importance of atheists coming out and being publically visible as atheists. Hiding behind various fashionable euphemisms is not enough. For our complete statement of principles, please consult our Atheist Manifesto.
