Hi Adrian, I would like to become a member as atheism has become very important to me, a passion to be honest. Since my father passed 2yrs ago I have been angry with religion and I want to help spread atheism and help people see truth and reason.
I will be honest here, I, until 2 yrs ago didn't have much of an opinion on religion other than I was skeptical. When my father died I was very angry and people told me he will be better off in heaven, don't worry he's in a better place etc. Which I rejected. I started to look into the atheism v theism argument and came across a brilliant man, one I'd wished I'd heard of perform his passing, the late great Christopher Hitchens and through his debates I was introduced to Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris. These 3 people changed my entire thinking and since then I have been telling everyone I know about my new way of thinking but most people don't want to hear it so I am hoping to find like minded people son I can share my passion and hopefully contribute to changing the mainstream view on religion.
I Googled Atheist Groups in North London.
Absolutely. I am a strong pacifist so would never use violence unless I am protecting myself or a loved one. But I will stand up and be counted for the sake of reason and truth.
I must admit a love the humorous, witty style of Christopher Hitchens. However there is a time and place for humour and then there is a time and place for direct, blunt speaking.
Welcome to the group, I was fascinated reading your story as I had a similar experience, am also very interested in the work of Christopher Hichens Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins. I hope you enjoy the group
Hi Michael and welcome to LAAG! If you can make it to one of our meetings I think you will find lots of passion, along with thinking, support and community. Oh, and a fair amount of humour, not to say boozing (not everyone, of course). Looking forward to meeting you.
