Bio

Aron Ra has been an political activist for more than a decade. He is an international public speaker, advocating science education, skeptical thinking, humanist values and secular policies all over the country and in twenty other countries--as a former regional director of American Atheists and now president of Atheist Alliance of America. He has over 144,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel, which has millions of views. He hosts the Ra-Men podcast, spotlighting progressive people--inventors, performers, politicians, pioneers---who are taking action to make things better. As a science communicator, he produces a video series of classroom supplement biology lessons for middle school and high school students with the help of his wife, a science teacher and curriculum specialist with the Next Generation [national] Science Standards. Aron Ra is the author of the book, Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism. He is also director of the Phylogeny Explorer Project--an effort to depict the entire phylogenetic "tree of life" as a navigable online encyclopedia--as an educational reference to be used by scientists, teachers, and students.

Aron Ra has lived all over the western states, and has been a Texas resident for the last twenty years. He currently lives in Garland in an almost empty nest: his blended family of two biological children and three step-children being mostly all grown.
