COMPULSORY Q (no membership if not answered): Pls describe yr position on religion/faith e.g. atheist, naturalist, 'agnostic', religious doubter, religious, OR any description that best describes you. (Not to label you, just to know group make-up)

No answer yet

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.

The need to commit suffering in the name of it. For example, self harm to feel closer to a divinity and any cult group that encourages such an idea. Religion itself isn't a negative thing, it is the people that promote negativity from within the social structures.

Where did you hear about us?

Radio 4 podcast and surrounding media coverage.

(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. Especially through the medium of written argument and letters.

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?

Done through policy forums in order to create a pressure group to help push motions through government.

Introduction

Hi, I am a religious studies student at King's College London. Although religion fascinates me from a social and political context, I am a non-believer. When I'm not knee deep in eschatology, I love classic rock, films and food writing.
