Mid-Ohio Atheists event July 21

Mid-Ohio Atheists will host a regional atheist picnic at noon Sunday at the North Park Shelter in Mohican State Park.

The picnic is a family event for atheists, freethinkers and nonbelievers. It is a chance for local religious leaders and believers to take part in a social event and see that nonbelievers are not much different than themselves. It is not a setting for arguments or debates.

The picnic will include a contest to benefit Harmony House, a homeless shelter. The contest will be judged on who brings the most toilet paper, trash bags and paper towels for donation. Prizes will be awarded.

Five speakers are scheduled, and there will be activities for children and adults, including cornhole and Frisbee. Speakers include Frank Zindler, director of American Atheists Press, on “Why only atheists can save the world;” Rachel Johnson, student and podcaster, on “Atheist Activism;” Dan DeMurra, atheist activist and organizer, on “Life Beyond Faith;” Douglas Whaley, OSU professor emeritus, lawyer, LGBT activist and author, on “What atheism can learn from the LGBT movement;” and Shauna Strand Sowga, sociology professor at Columbus State Community College, on “How secularism has affected my life.”

Mid Ohio Atheists is actively building an atheist community in the Mansfield area by having social and educational activities for members. Pub nights and movie nights are regularly scheduled events. A Mohican River canoe adventure is being planned for August and a trip to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History is planned for fall.

'No Religion' is World's Third-Largest "religion".

REUTERS - People with no religious affiliation make up the third-largest global group in a new study of the size of the world's faiths, placing after Christians and Muslims and just before Hindus.

The study, based on extensive data for the year 2010, also showed Islam and Hinduism are the faiths mostly likely to expand in the future while Jews have the weakest growth prospects.

It showed Christianity is the most evenly spread religion, present in all regions of the world, while Hinduism is the least global with 94 percent of its population in one country, India.

Overall, 84 percent of the world's inhabitants, which it estimated at 6.9 billion, identify with a religion, according to the study entitled "The Global Religious Landscape" issued by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life on Tuesday.

The "unaffiliated" category covers all those who profess no religion, from atheists and agnostics to people with spiritual beliefs but no link to any established faith.

"Many of the religiously unaffiliated do hold religious or spiritual beliefs," the study stressed.

"Belief in God or a higher power is shared by 7 percent of unaffiliated Chinese adults, 30 percent of unaffiliated French adults and 68 percent of unaffiliated U.S. adults," it said.
