Who are The Brights?
- We are participants in an international internet constituency of individuals. All of us have a naturalistic worldview, free of supernatural or mystical elements.
- A Bright's ethics and actions are based on a naturalistic worldview.
- The Brights aspire to an egalitarian civic vision. We want citizens who have a naturalistic worldview to be accepted as full participants in civil society
Definitions: A "super" (noun) is a person whose worldview includes supernatural and/or mystical elements. A "bright" (noun) is a person whose worldview is free of supernatural and mystical elements (naturalistic) .
What is the Challenge?
Currently, the naturalistic worldview is insufficiently expressed within most cultures - even politically and socially repressed. To be a Bright is to participate in a movement to address the situation.
There is a great diversity of persons who have a naturalistic worldview. Some are members of existing organizations that foster a supernatural-free perspective, but far more are not associated with any formal group or label. Under the broad umbrella of the naturalistic worldview, participants in the constituency of Brights can undertake social and civic actions designed to influence a society otherwise permeated with supernaturalism.
Support Our Vision
The Brights' Net is entirely funded by personal donations of individuals from across the globe. Most are brights. But there are supers who also want to help advance the civic vision of the Brights movement. Whether you are a bright or a super, if you would like to support this vision of civic equality for the citizens who have a naturalistic worldview, please consider becoming a "checkbook activist" by following this link:
Is Your Worldview Naturalistic?
Think about your own worldview to decide if it is free of supernatural or mystical deities, forces, and entities.
If you decide that you fit the description above, then you are, by definition, a bright!
On this website, you can simply say so and, by doing so, join with brights from all over the world in an extraordinary initiative to elevate the thinking of society—the Brights movement.
With the information you provide, we count you a Bright in your locale (by nation and/or postal code), but we will never release your name, e-mail, or address to anyone without your express written permission. After enrollment, you may manage your subscription settings from the link on this page to receive or not receive the monthly e-mail bulletins.
