Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit Invited Speaker Series
Exploring the apparent motives and behaviors of defenders of the faith.
Aron Ra is a science communicator and secular activist with over 150,000 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 Director of the Phylogeny Explorer Project—a navigable online encyclopedic depiction of the entire taxonomic tree of life. He produces the Living Science Lessons classroom supplement video series teaching high school biology according to the “Next Generation” national standards, and unapologetically includes explanations of evolution, climate change, deep-time and other culturally controversial topics in America’s “Bible belt”. Aron Ra is best known for contesting the Texas State Board of Education in their attempts to denigrate evolution and teach notions of conservative Christian creationism in both science and history classrooms of public schools. He is Southwest Regional Director of American Atheists, former President of Atheist Alliance of America, and author of Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism.
