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.

It's involvement in education and politics... and the willful ignorance of religious people to even consider facts and rational thinking

Where did you hear about us?

No answer yet

(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?

Yes I'd be happy to get involved in all sorts of events time permitting

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?

Definitely the matter of religion in education, and the lack of accountability of faith schools to teach the proper science curriculum (or if they do to actively declare evolution false in religious studies class). I don't have children (yet), but we should be teaching our future leaders to think critically, believe in evidence and question things that aren't based on what can be proven. I don't mind what sort of activities I'd get involved in whatever I can (time / circumstance allowing)

Introduction
