I have just moved to London from NZ where I was part of a University group called S.A.R.S (Society of Atheists, Rationalists and Skeptics). I really enjoyed getting together with like-minded people, having some interesting discussions and a few beers! A lot bothers me about religion... the contradictions, the hatred and violence it creates, people intellectually deceiving themselves, the sign outside the church down my street claiming to heal the sick, etc.

Where did you hear about us?

Searched 'atheists' on meetup

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?
