addaword.gifdefinition of bright

noun
A bright is a person who has a naturalistic worldview which is free of supernatural and mystical elements
If you are a bright (by definition), then why not stand up and be a Bright (in person)? By speaking out as a Bright (or simply as “a person who has a naturalistic worldview”), you can in fact help extend the Bright idea to the general population.
