COMPULSORY Q: Why do you want to join? (if faith/religion bothers you, what aspects in particular? (Helps us tailor activities to your concerns (within our remit of "peacefully promote reason/atheism")). Pls write as much or as little as you like.

1) It divides people rather than unites them. 2) It is a patent falsehood that was shown to be fancyful and baseless centuries ago yet still it holds sway at high political and social levels. 3) It condones and encourages scores of social prejudices. 4) It is in conflict with the sciences and and claims superiority over them. 5) It invokes the 'jam tomorrow' promise; "Everything will be great when you're dead!", so don't worry about the planet, society, justice or peace - God will sort it all out later. 6) It condones and encourages violent actions against any who do not believe in it. Plenty more where that came from.

(You're welcome as a social or even a silent member, & there's absolutely no pressure - but would you want to be involved (at some stage) in actively challenging faith in any way? Petitions, leafleting etc, or something else?

If so, what kind of issues are most emotive for you? What kind of activism do you prefer - humourous/cheeky or more direct? Any other ideas you'd like to share at the moment?


Age 58, married, three grown-up sons, live in Leytonstone. Staunch atheist/rationalist since my youth. Looking forward to some lively exchanges with like-minded people.
