Talk:Cyprus FreeThinkers

This looked too much like drive-by ranting to me, so I decided to have a look at their website. Most of it is in Greek, but there are a few articles in English, such as this gem:

There is this illogical perception we constructed as humans – one we are slowly drifting away either we want it or not – control. For example trying to control economics is similar to trying to control the laws of physics or society itself. Hawkins explains this very thoroughly in “A History of time”. The relationships in all these from religion to economics and authoritarian societal order, call it democracy or church, are constantly fluid and ever-changing based on many dynamics that are beyond our control. Emphasizing libertarianism as key to human individuality and personal liberation (as much as our biases allow) is key to being as much moral or ethical we can beyond the merits of trying to control others or nature itself to accomplish it. It is the most rational and effective approach to human inquiry and I can give you some brief examples how these are implemented.

Anyone willing to put the rest through Google Translate? Also, do you think they warrant an article?--ZooGuard (talk) 11:55, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

I chose the English gems. I cannot be bothered to translate. There is also an article written bilingually I have linked to. Παράξεν3 12:10, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
PS: I missed your question. Yes, they are influential on the internet in Cyprus. Also, because they have been in our FB group and make a fool of themselves so people ask about them. In addition, they inspired that article from Armondikov. Παράξεν3 12:15, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
PPS: They are the one of the only vocal atheist movements in a deeply religious island. And I see no reason to not mock them with the SPOV. You never know, one might pop up and troll here after all! Drama is delicious. Παράξεν3 12:16, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
