About 5 years back, we in the freethought community in the SF Peninsula
area liked the word Reason, as in
Communities of Reason
People of Reason
I also like the word Evidence, which contrasts nicely with Faith.
People of Evidence, People in Evidence, People with Evidence.
In the same spirit of how the scientific method differs from faith,
People who Test, People who Check, People who Wonder, People of
Falsifiable Ideas (OK, not catchy).
