When you’ve “had it” with gods, devils, heavens and hells, this might snag your attention…

Atheist confab (1)Who would have thought that a discussion group about atheism would have a chance of success? When Marvin Straus, a Newport resident, organized a group called the Newport Nonbelievers in October 2015, he figured a half dozen people would show up at the library. Two dozen folks were at that first meeting and the audience has been growing since then. Although Straus says he doesn’t believe in gods or devils or heaven or hell, everyone is welcome, no matter what their religious persuasion. Buddhists, spiritualists, and religious members are sprinkled among the atheists, secular humanists, and agnostics and the mixture keeps the monthly discussions lively and informative. Everyone is encouraged to state their views and defend their opinions. Past meetings have been about Galileo and Darwin. The February 6th, Saturday meeting starts at 1:30 p.m. at the Newport Library and it is about “Our Mortality.” The common joke, which is sure to be shared at the meeting, is the atheist tombstone which says, “Here lies John Smith, all dressed up and no place to go.”
For more information about the group, go to http://www.meetup.com/Newport-Nonbelievers-NewNon/ or contact Straus at newnon1@outlook.com.
