About the Author
Science helped free me from the faith virus at age 11. That was 39 years ago, and I’ve gone from a kid with fewer friends than I’d have had if I did the church thing, to an arch-atheist who is well-regarded by most religious people I come into contact with. It is possible to be ‘militant’ and not be an ass about it.
