Freethought Oasis provides community and connection for agnostics, atheists, skeptics, secularists, and freethinkers in Amarillo, the Texas panhandle, and the surrounding area.
Our latest contribution to the community can be found about halfway between Amarillo and Canyon. We've adopted a two-mile stretch of FM 1541 (South Washington), beginning about two miles south of McCormick Road. Come join us as we participate in the Texas Adopt-A-Highway program and improve the environment here in the Texas Panhandle. We'll be cleaning up four times a year so check back here under "Upcoming Events" for more details.
Freethought Oasis is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.
National Day of Reason
On May 3, 2012 representatives of Panhandle Humanists, WTAMU's Secular Student Alliance and Freethought Oasis gathered to celebrate the National Day of Reason. Celebrating the National Day of Reason is an act of rebellion against the fanciful and unconstitutional National Day of Prayer, which officially takes place on the same day.
Instead of attempting to escape reality through prayer, local Freethinkers chose to surround themselves with a beautiful spectacle of reality in the form of Palo Duro Canyon. As food and drink were shared, conversations leapt from education to politics to geology and even philosophy.
Amidst the geological strata of an Earth far older than some would have us believe, the soil of reason was tilled a bit longer and with dear friends.
