A rationalist believes that knowledge and truth are ascertained by using reason and logic, and not by divine or supernatural revelation.

While the term atheist conveys meaning with more people (but is often misinterpreted) than rationalist, it is only stating a lack of a belief. Our members do believe in something. They believe that the world can be understood in terms of natural processes and that as we only have this life it is important that we treat each other with respect and this is best achieved in an open and tolerant society.

Our members may identify themselves as being an atheist, agnostic, freethinker, heathen, infidel, bright, or choose not to associate themselves with any of these labels.
