What are the Rules of the Rationalist Society of Australia?

All members must agree with the Rules of the Rationalist Society of Australia, which can be found here.

I don't live in Australia. Can I still receive the journal?

Yes! We welcome international members. However owing to the cost of sending the journal overseas, we will need to charge you a slightly higher annual fee ($80 for single membership; $65 for single concession) to cover the costs of postage. Send an email to for more details.

All the more reason.
