About our featured speaker:
Aron Ra will talk about "Atheist Awe and Wonder," refuting a common misconception that atheists somehow miss out on an appreciation of "creation."

Aron is a science communicator and secular activist with more than 180,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel. His videos promoting scientific skepticism, secular politics and humanist values have been mirrored, featured, referenced and recommended by many professional scientists, secularists and educators.

He is the Southwest Regional Director of American Atheists, an ordained Dudeist, and director of the Phylogeny Explorer Project, a navigable online encyclopedic depiction of the entire taxonomic tree of life. He also produces the Living Science Lessons classroom supplement video series, teaching middle and high school biology according to the “Next Generation” national standards. These unapologetically include explanations of evolution, climate change, deep-time and other culturally controversial topics in America’s “Bible Belt.”

Aron Ra is best known as the author of Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism, and for public testimonies contesting the Texas State Board of Education in its attempts to denigrate evolution and teach notions of conservative Christian creationism in both science and history classrooms of public schools.
Recorded at Kansas City Oasis on September 2, 2018.
