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.

what bothers me is the claim that religion claims to know the answers for everything. I believe it gives it's followers false hope and divides people. It's hard to pinpoint one thing that I don't like religion.

Where did you hear about us?

I searched meetup for atheist meetups.

(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 would be very much interested in doing this.

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?

I prefer it to be direct and to the point but I don't like to act as though I have all the answers or be condescending towards religious people.
