The Sedona/Verde Valley Secular Freethinkers as a group may be considered young — they’ve only been meeting for a little more than a year and a half — but anybody picturing angry, chain-smoking teenagers and college-age anarchists should probably take a second look.

George Bein, of the Sedona/Verde Valley Secular Freethinkers, center, poses with evolutionary bioligist Richard Dawkins, left, and author Sean Faircloth in the backyard of Bein’s home in Sedona in January 2012. Dawkins and Faircloth visited the nonreligious group on their way to Phoenix during Super Bowl weekend.Boasting an open membership of more than 60 members from Sedona and Cottonwood, the freethinkers come from all walks of life, and you certainly would be hard pressed to pick them out of a crowd on any given day.

“We have atheists, agnostics, humanists, Unitarians, all kinds of people,” member and self-described secular humanist George Bein said, adding that everybody is welcome.
