“The Secular Tourist” Episode #57 with Von

We had a great discussion on this episode with The Secular Tourist, who describes his background thusly:

 

“I was born and raised here in Michigan.  As a kid, going on vacation for us was visiting our relatives in Detroit but fortunately, as an adult, I have been able to escape Michigan from time to time and see some of the world.  More importantly, as a teenager (14 to be exact), I was able to escape the mental imprisonment known as religion, which set me on the path to become a rational adult.  I am not a scholar or a scientist.  I am an everyday, blue collar atheist but I fully agree with Neil deGrasse Tyson’s assertion that you cannot exercise your full potential as a voter unless you become scientifically literate.  That being said, I continually strive to learn more about the world and our place in it and I encourage my fellow human beings to do the same.”
