Biography

Lilandra in real life is often referred to as "MrsRA", "LadyRA"or"SheRA(by those with feminist tendencies). A few of the people she meets with The Mister on their travels through the secular community have made an effort to know her a bit as well. Most folks understandably gravitate to her massive spouse's inescapable charisma and much better publicized but well-earned internet persona. The story of how she met Aron Ra is not surprisingly entangled with religion and the crevo debate (Pre-Youtube), That story is for another time. When Lilandra is not trapped inside AronRa's sphere of influence, she is a science educator and advocate. Please don't feel sorry for her; she meets the most interesting people this way. Lilandra co-hosts a bi-weekly webcast on youtube called The Nones with Shanon Nebo. The Nones have managed to make an enemy out of creationists including Ken Ham. She also contributes regularly on the topic of education to a major metropolitan southern newspaper that leans a bit to the right . This forum has allowed her to expand her sphere of influence ever so slightly into the realm of people who would not otherwise be exposed to progressive viewpoints. Her youtube videos focus on science education and freethought. She has a unique understanding of religious point of views that comes from being raised as a Southern Baptist/Catholic in two separate households. She hopes to bring what Aron Ra sometimes describes as "girly" point of view that is sometimes necessary to Aron's Blog, sort of like what she brings to the marriage. Kind of like a yin and yang thing without the New Age hokum...

On being Mrs Ra (I get comments)

game-of-thrones-new-poster

The first thing I need to get out of the way is for the most part it is great to be Mrs. Ra. I get to meet all sorts of interesting and intelligent freethinkers all over the country. And over time, I have come out of my introverted shell more. The cool thing lately, is …

So, you’d like to see better science education?

Aron and I have been involved together in opposing pseudoscience since before we met, and married. Of course, he has been at this twice as long and has an exponentially bigger footprint both on necks of creationists, and on people he has helped educate. I am one of those people. Ten years ago,he challenged me …

Unholy Trinity Tour Last Stop: San Antonio Tomorrow

There is some speculation on just who resembles who in the Unholy Trinity.  Most people think that Aron resembles Satan himself. Even Ken Ham pointed out that he thinks Aron looks Satanic.  You could make a case for the other 2 in the tour Seth Andrews or Matt Dillahunty. How does anyone know what Satan …

Youtube Misogyny: Glenn and Rad on “Rodger Madman or Misogynist”?

Christina Rad has an excellent rebuttal to Jaclyn Glenn’s musings and follow up on Elliot Rodger, and his motives for a mass shooting. She has some astute observations on how words like mentally ill and insane are not interchangeable.  I don’t want to ruin it for you, so go watch it. Of course, the comments …

White Envy not White Entitlement

It looks like I am not the only Asian, who recognized that Elliot Rodger is not quite as white as people think. Although Rodger identified as white, his obsession with blondes may have stemmed from the fact that he didn’t feel white enough. Although Asian voices are seemingly invisible, they can provide valuable insight. This …

The True Pooka’s final report on Secular Pro-Life’s tactics is posted. In addition to the other tactics Pooka documented, the group …

Secular Pro-Life (Anti-choice) Claim: Planned Parenthood Cheats Donors

True Pooka investigates… Now that you’re done reading I’m going to show you a magic trick I call; “Proper research done without confirmation bias followed by conclusions drawn based on experience and …

Courtney Caldwell and Sarah Moglia joining me to discuss secular anti-choice arguments withMSS

So I won’t be the “token woman” on this round of discussion on the Magic Sandwich Show.  Sarah Moglia has already weighed in on her opinion of secular arguments against abortion. Also Courtney Caldwell will be joining the discussion . I first became aware of her when she liveblogged the Wendy Davis filibuster. Should be an …

Secular Pro-Life “Holocaust Baiting” Post 2

The second post looking at Secular Pro-Life’s tactics is up. I hope that informing the community about what they advocate will provide information about SPL for our community to make up their own minds. This series will show that the people at SPL aren’t critical thinkers and haven’t earned the title “freethinker.” To that aim, …

Secular Pro-Life “Fetus Worshippers”?

Should we defend freethinking spaces from anti-choicers like Secular Pro-Life? I wanted more information on this organization as I have seen them at conventions.  Lucky for me, I know you-tuber True Pooka, who as he will tell you, shares the same concern. He has more experience investigating anti-choice groups than I do. He has shown …
