The Atheist Society is for Atheists, Agnostics and Free-Thinkers. We have no agreed definition of Atheism, nor of Agnosticism, nor of Religion. We have no common position on most issues. So we agree to disagree.
In my opinion, Atheists have a lack of belief in God, in gods, in the Divine, in the Spiritual, in the Supernatural, in the Occult, in Superstition, and in supernatural processes such as Re-incarnation and Astrology, as well as a lack of belief in paranormal phenomena such as Extra Sensory Perception and Unidentified Flying Objects.
In my opinion, Atheists should not be afraid to say that they “don’t know”, that they do not have an answer. To an Atheist, a lack of knowledge should not be a fearful vacuum which must be filled with fairy-tale mumbo-jumbo. Nevertheless, those with religious beliefs, etcetera, are very welcome to attend our meetings and to participate in the discussions which follow the talks and lectures.
We do not bother with formal membership. Consequently, we don’t have a membership fee. Although our lectures are free, we do however pass the ‘begging-bowls’ around in an attempt to cover the cost of our meeting room. If one can afford it, $2 is usually sufficient.
