BOARD MEMBER AMERICAN ATHEISTS
Aron Ra is a science communicator and secular activist with roughly 280,000 YouTube subscribers. His videos promoting scientific skepticism, secular politics, and humanist values have been mirrored, featured, referenced, and recommended by many professional scientists, secularists, and educators.
He is Director of the Phylogeny Explorer Project, a navigable online encyclopedic depiction of the entire taxonomic tree of life. He produces the Living Science Lessons classroom supplement video series teaching high school biology according to national standards, and unapologetically includes explanations of evolution, climate change, deep-time and other culturally controversial topics in America’s “Bible Belt.” He is also the author of Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism.
Aron Ra is best known for contesting Texas’ State Board of Education in their attempts to denigrate evolution and teach notions of conservative Christian creationism in both science and history classrooms of public schools. He was elected to the Board of Directors in 2019.
