London Atheist Activist Group (LAAGers!) is UK's LARGEST ATHEIST COMMUNITY, & is really about critical thinking as a whole. Non-theists of any description or location welcome. Anyone globally can join (lively discussions online everyday), & events incl. talks, activities & socials if you're living, working in or visiting London. 'Agnostics', deists & religious doubters also welcome. (We do have a few believers as members, they are welcome - we're happy to engage in sincere dialogue with almost anyone, as long as your faith position is declared upon joining, & honest and civil debate takes place)

Atheism gets a bad press so if you're nervous our reviews should reassure you! You'll get a warm welcome from an inclusive, constructive community, all ages/ backgrounds.

SERIOUS ISSUES DOESN'T HAVE TO MEAN UPTIGHT ;-)  Enjoy yourself,  meet people, have a laugh. And you'll make a difference just by joining as larger numbers mean we can speak up on issues such as ...

'Holy' books' excuses don't stop bigotry being bigotry...

PEACEFUL PROMOTION & CELEBRATION OF REASON, SEPARATION OF STATE from SUPERSTITIONS

FREE EXPRESSION, ONE LAW FOR ALL, HUMAN (particularly CHILDRENS') RIGHTS above RELIGIOUS RITES

WHY LAAG is UNIQUE:

  • UK Meetup's BUSIEST webforum - Daily discussions (serious & humorous!). Many non-London & overseas members too.
  • Frequent & varied events in Central & West London; debates, talks ranging from social issues to science, lectures, friendly pub meetups, exhibitions, picnics ...CELEBRATIONS are also an important feature of the group.
  • We explore serious issues (but embrace an unashamedly playful side, too) Our maxim: Humour often reaches where lectures don’t!
  • Open debate - no censoring! We're against censoring in any form for adults. Expect civil, friendly but frank.
  • A peaceful activist platform (for those who want it - no pressure). We don't advocate 'forcing' atheism (an inevitable conclusion of thinking critically anyway!), we just want people to be ALLOWED to think for themselves, especially children. No violence/aggression, obviously, but no need for timidity either. We're not 'militant' - no militia is ever involved ;-) ...and atheism cures religious terrorism too ;-)),  but we are confident, forthright and committed. Reason, critical thinking & egalitarianism (without religious bigotry!) are values to be promoted & celebrated; faith is the vice that we immunise against, with critical thinking.

We facilitate & support (NO IMPOSING!) doing *something* - whatever is right for YOU, your circumstances, disposition etc ...even if it's 'just' silent membership or the social aspect. Just by joining the group, you're already an activist because you add to our weight to speak for those who can't help themselves, so thank you.
