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)

Its a crock of sh1te

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 way in which, even small shreds of religious assumptions/desires/ideas can enter into and damage the psyche and inhibit one's ability to understand the true nature of the world and our experience of it. On top of that you have the increasing risk of social/geopolitical strife (e.g. the Islamic Winter" and equally dangerous results of American Christian fundamentalism) caused by the widespread acceptance of "faith" as a valid way of knowing. These disable our ability to act based upon empathy for others

Meetup activity feed

(You're welcome to be a social or even a silent member, & there's absolutely no pressure) - but would you like to be involved in actively challenging faith yourself in any way? Petitions, leafleting etc, or something else?

Yes

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 think we need a balanced range of approaches

Introduction

Have been an atheist ever since I can remember but have only recently realised how, even small shreds of religious assumptions/desires/­ideas can enter the psyche and stop one seeing the world clearly & actually close off some interesting experiences
