From pop culture to religious cultures, Seth takes a humorous and revealing look at belief, cherished heroes, and the true stories hidden beneath the legends. Seth Andrews, a video producer and former Christian broadcaster, now hosts "The Thinking Atheist," one of the most popular online atheist communities in the world, a site which encourages all to reject faith and embrace doubt, curiosity and reason.
Seth has chronicled his transition from believer to atheist in his autobiography, "Deconverted: a Journey from Religion to Reason," and in his weekly radio podcast downloaded 1.5 million times a month.
His second book, "Sacred Cows: a Lighthearted Look at Belief and Tradition Around the World" releases any day now! Be prepared - he just might have his new book with him! Or bring your copy of "Deconverted" from home. I'm sure he'll sign it for you!
ACSJ: Seth Andrews - "Sacred Cows: A Lighthearted Look at Belief and Tradition Around the World""
The talk tonight is entitled "Sacred Cows: a Lighthearted Look at Belief and Tradition Around the World" Did you know God forbids the tying of shoelaces on Saturday? Or that humans emit a color aura which can only be discerned with a third eye? That a bountiful harvest requires the flinging of a live goat from a church bell tower? That instead of wishing upon a star, we can wish upon a...cow? Join author and radio host Seth Andrews for a random romp across the planet...and a humorous look at some of humanity’s sacred cows.
With a mix of humor and heart, Seth Andrews speaks around the country about his former faith, the rise of reason, and why we should all pursue a personal relationship with reality.
