RAGE BAIT: Finding the Real Story in a World of Half-Truths

July 14 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Seth Andrews

On an internet which has weaponized knee-jerk outrage for fun and profit, even self-described skeptics are losing the plot (while often losing their tempers). Seth Andrews brings interesting, amusing, and alarming examples of righteousness gone wrong, with an encouragement that we can all do better.

Speaker

Seth Andrews

Our guest speaker will be The Thinking Atheist Seth Andrews. Seth Andrews is a broadcaster, storyteller, author, activist, and public speaker best known as host of the popular website, podcast, and online community, The Thinking Atheist. ​ Originally the product of Christian fundamentalism, today Seth is an advocate, not for religion, but for people, and while he - as a storyteller - loves the distraction of supernatural fiction, he ultimately encourages everyone to root their pursuit of the truth in reason and evidence, and to pursue a Personal Relationship With Reality. Seth lives in Oklahoma with his wife Natalie and his unofficial mascots, Linus, Gracie, and Kat. He enjoys movies, sushi (no tentacles), tennis, referencing "Hitchhiker's Guide," casual gaming, 80s music, piano by ear, and constantly flipping his pillow to the cool side.
