We say: "In fact freethought is not the same as atheism but there is no evidence for any religion." Could the author clarify:

  • The difference between freethought and athiesm.
  • How the "but" part of the sentence is connected to the first part - I can't see it.
  • What the "but" part means. Religions certainly exist and there is evidence they exist. I assume it should say "No religion is based on evidence." But I still can't see how it flows from the first part of the sentence. I would correct it, but I can't quite work out what the author is trying to say.R Fitzroy 17:15, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
