National Freethought Day is observed annually on October 12. The purpose of this National Day is to encourage people to be free thinkers and to base opinions on facts, science, logic and reason.

This day occurs on the anniversary of the effective end of the Salem Witch trials on October 12, 1692.  On this day, Massachusetts Governor William Phips wrote a letter condemning the use of spectral evidence against the accused.

At some point, the trials did resume and “spectral evidence” was allowed but largely discounted and those convicted were swiftly pardoned by Phips.

HOW TO OBSERVE
