Growing up, I didn’t realize religion really existed. In my hometown, talking about religion made people uncomfortable, so my agnostic family never mentioned it. I only learned about Christianity in history class, alongside Greek mythology. In this very secular environment I grew up an atheist without even knowing the term. Now, I’m running Charity Science where I look at the scientific evidence and find charities that are proven to work. I then spread the idea of evidence-based altruism because I want atheists’ legacy to be that not only can we do good without god, we can do better.

Churches get more than enough money already and they spend it inefficiently on things of questionable value. We can do so much better.
