I was delighted to see the response from this site to the recent blasphemy law in the news! Keep up the great work!

manefesto??? We’re not the communists nor the uni-bomber, we discuss all topics on the public forum, where you can post and see what the org is about. A manefesto sounds like something laid in concrete something static, that’s not what we’re about. The outline for the role of Atheist Ireland was set out in the old Wiki, which got nuked with spambots, a new Wiki is currently being worked on. You could check out wikipedia for ‘Atheist’ and ‘Atheist Ireland’.

One reason for the couple of Quid is to reduce spammers, the other is because those involved wants to pay for the websites and the events held. I do find these two posts over-simular, I can’t see why financial data would be put onto a public forum or even the member’s area. I think that would leave Atheist Ireland open to financial attack from opponents and opportunists.
You do not have to pay to use the Forum/Facebook/Youtube there is nothing extra in being a member, if you support the secular cause then the fee in reality is really optional, there are many full time Atheists that always attend meetings write on the forum give loads of time to Atheist Ireland and yet are not ‘members’.
I realise that someone may want to donate a sum of money or affiliate with AI and but do not know exactly what Atheist Ireland is, I would recommend the communications officer.
In describing what Atheist Ireland is, it might be wise to describe what Atheist Ireland isn’t.

I've fixed that for you. Your payment was received and recorded through paypal but it seems the members area software didn't get the message.

That was my bad, I look after that normally and I let it slide for a little while. I am now up to date on this.

You will also find a printable application form at this link Image if you wish to join by cheque or postal order.
Just wondering where I can announce that I have just successfully defected from the Catholic Church. Also wondering if I am already one of the 10,042 or am to be added to it.

Hi everyone! A proud atheist from Tullamore here. Just found this site and forum today. I'm also only halfway through The God Delusion. I better get back to it.
