In Reason We Trust

About LFF

The Last Frontier Freethinkers was founded on February 8th, 2014 by a group of non-theists on the Kenai Peninsula.  Our members are freethinkers of many kinds. We call ourselves agnostics, Unitarians, atheists, skeptics, secular humanists, and rationalists. We welcome you and all who are interested in participating in our friendly community, either as members or observers.  We support each other while engaging in social activism, philosophical discussion, and community building events.

The purpose of our non-profit, educational organization is to promote a progressive philosophy of life, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirming our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity. This human-centered view point is a valid contribution to public discourse and helps to guarantee the maintenance of the First Amendment’s assurance of the separation of state and church.

KNOWLEDGE:
We are committed to the application of critical thinking, reason, science, and experience to better understand the universe and to solve human problems. We disapprove of efforts to denigrate human intelligence.
We believe in the importance of promoting the understanding of humans being an integral part of nature and the result of unguided evolutionary change.
We welcome new ideas, but we are skeptical of untested, unverifiable, or supernatural claims to knowledge.
We encourage the pursuit of the creative arts and sciences. Activities in both areas are essential to the growth of humanity.
SOCIAL ETHICS:
We are committed to the separation of church and state.
We are concerned with securing justice and fairness in an open, pluralistic, and democratic society.
We believe in the inherent dignity, equal, and inalienable rights of all members of the human family and that Human Rights are the foundation of freedom, justice, and peace in the world. We wish to eliminate discrimination and intolerance based on race, religion, gender, nationality, class, sexual orientation, or ethnicity, and we strive to work together for the common good of humanity.
We believe in evidence based decision making when it comes to economic, educational, and socio- political issues. Using a scientific approach to investigate all available evidence can lead to policy decisions that are more effective in achieving desired outcomes as decisions are based on accurate and meaningful information. We encourage negotiation and compromise to resolve differences and achieve mutual understanding through logic and reason.
We believe that every life has value and in alleviating the suffering of the disadvantaged and disabled they will have a better quality of life.
We respect the right to privacy and believe in the right to sexual and reproductive freedom commensurate with the acceptance of sexual and reproductive responsibility.
We want to protect and enhance the earth, to preserve it for future generations, and to avoid inflicting needless suffering on other living beings.
MORALITY:
We do not accept moral authority based on the supernatural. The transformative power of religion is no indication of its truth, but rather of a universal human longing for a loving society where we can experience happiness and purpose. Secular humanist’s fall in love with an ideal, too – with nature and humanity – and our lives are likewise transformed by this just as much as for any religious devotee.
We believe in guiding our lives by a set of principles which govern human interactions. Humanist virtues are derived from critical reasoning and their moral principles are tested by their consequences. These principles are essential to or binding upon human society. These principles have been tested many times and are always found to hold true. These principles are: Honesty, Compassion, Justice, Generosity, Fidelity, Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude, Gratitude, and Integrity.
We are deeply committed to the moral education of children.
Virtuous people are the key to human flourishing and lasting human happiness!
THE MEANING OF LIFE:
The responsibility for our lives and the kind of world in which we live is ours and ours alone. We are steadfast in our optimism about the good which humans can achieve. We believe secular humanism can bring about the fullest realization of the best we are capable of as human beings.
As Secular Humanist’s we redefine a spiritual experience as a combined sensation of awe, inner peace, and enlightenment culminating in a reverence for life and nature, and a sincere reflection about these things and oneself.  We too have a spiritual life, because we live a self-examined life of the mind, we care deeply about our beliefs, caring more about our ideals and human happiness than about material things, and we experience awe, inner peace, and enlightenment when we fathom the human mind and the natural world. We are good without a god.
Human flourishing is found through the development of intrinsic happiness. Rather than being deceived by false perceptions of happiness in the pursuit of wealth, image, or status. We believe that intrinsic happiness is realized through life experience, building relationships, personal growth, and the desire to help others. We experience awe by noticing the natural world around us and what humanity has contributed through truth, beauty, and goodness; an inner peace through our own personal accomplishments by taking care of our physical and mental health, learning new things, having  goals to look forward to, finding ways to bounce back from adversity, always taking a positive approach to life, being authentic and comfortable with our place in the universe, and experiencing flow; the desire to help others leads to a comprehension of being  part of something bigger than ourselves which generates an enlightened insight and understanding into the human experience.
