Beliefs: New Atheist
Chris founded the society at the end of 2006 and continues to lead it with passion and enthusiasm. He describes himself as a New Atheist much like Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins, having developed a strong interest in theology over recent years and never missing a Christian Union lunch bar. He is currently studying for an undergraduate degree in computing and is planning to move into world domination after graduation. Chris is a good person to contact if you have queries about the society as he will be able to answer them or at very least direct you to the relevant person within the society.
Degree: Joint Honours
Norman, or Norm as he better known, is currently an undergraduate reading a joint honours degree in Materials, Computing and Management at the University of Leeds. Norman has been an Atheist for about seven years and would describe himself primarily as a rationalist, bordering on empiricist. A keen debater, Norman is always prepared to speak his mind on all things, including his lack of religious beliefs. He is the first point of contact for any administrative queries and is always available if you need general information about Atheist Soc or atheism in general.
