CFI Definitions


The Center for Inquiry is an authoritative and credible voice defending the scientific outlook in examining religion, humanistic values, and the borderlands of science. CFI defends the secular society and humanistic ethical values.

CFI defends these values through education, research, publishing, and social outreach initiatives. Our members and volunteers are committed in the examination of ancient mythological narratives of the past while protecting non-religious identities and ethical values. That’s who CFI is and that’s what we most strongly believe in.

If you’re interested in joining the many others in the fight but find you don’t know what some of the terms used in the community mean, CFI has you covered. The Center for Inquiry has created a set of definitive definitions to help explain who we are.
