Description

Aron Ra was raised in a mostly Mormon family, journeying to atheism via an array of religious denominations and spiritualities. Having grown up in an academic environment saturated by creationism, Aron was drawn to secular activism when the religious right gained control of the Texas Board of Education and began to influence curricula on history, health, science and social studies in textbooks used throughout America. Aron is Texas State Director of American Atheists, author of the Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism YouTube Series, and an internationally renowned speaker on topics such as evolution, truth, knowledge and belief. This presentation was delivered at the Center for Inquiry on April 8th 2016.
