London Atheist Activist Group (LAAGers!) is UK's LARGEST ATHEIST COMMUNITY, & is really about critical thinking as a whole. Non-theists of any description or location welcome. Anyone globally can join (lively discussions online everyday), & events incl. talks, activities & socials if you're living, working in or visiting London. 'Agnostics', deists & religious doubters also welcome. (We do have a few believers as members, they're welcome - we're happy to engage in sincere dialogue with almost anyone, as long as your faith position is declared upon joining, & honest and civil debate takes place)
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING:
"Thanks for doing what you're doing. Together we can make significant progress toward eradicating the faith virus". Peter Bohossian, Philosopher & author of "Manual for creating atheists"
"This (stopping State funding for creationist nurseries) wouldn't have happened without LAAG"Jonny Scaramanga, activist.
COMMUNITY: Atheism gets a bad press, so if you're nervous about what it'd be like to join,click here & reviews will reassure you! You'll get a warm welcome from an inclusive, friendly, fun & constructive community, of all ages/ backgrounds.
SERIOUS ISSUES DOESN'T HAVE TO MEAN UPTIGHT ;-) Enjoy yourself, meet people, have a laugh. We're about PEACEFUL PROMOTION & CELEBRATION OF REASON, If you want to be active, that's great, but you'll make a difference just by joining, as larger numbers mean we can speak up on issues such as ...
'Holy' books' excuses don't stop bigotry being bigotry...
SEPARATION OF STATE from SUPERSTITIONS
FREE EXPRESSION, ONE LAW FOR ALL
HUMAN (particularly CHILDRENS') RIGHTS above RELIGIOUS RITES
Faith is pretending to know what you don't. Looking at chicken entrails for answers. Hardly something to brag about! It's the vice that we want to immunise against, with critical thinking.
WHY LAAG is UNIQUE:
We facilitate & support (NO IMPOSING!) doing *something* - whatever is right for YOU, your circumstances, disposition etc ...even if it's 'just' silent membership, or social only. Just by joining the group, you're already an activist because you add to our weight to speak for those who can't help themselves, so thank you.
