Standing outside the EMU Amphitheatre, University freshman Greg Kirby holds a white sign. It reads, "Ask an Atheist Anything." Kirby, the vice president of the recently formed Alliance of Happy Atheists student group, discusses religion with people as they pass by, while promoting the group's weekly Thursday meetings.

A group of eight organizers has been meeting since January, but has only hosted public meetings since April. On April 10, 90 students gathered for AHA's first meeting.

Despite the recent surge of best-selling books promoting atheism, atheists are often portrayed negatively in the popular press; and stories about grouchy atheists trying to win various lawsuits largely dominate popular perception of the non-religious demographic.
