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...

The Asian Panel at FTBCon has spawned a group for Secular Asian Americans

Our panel was composed of East and South Asians, and Hemant Mehta joked we were the only Asian freethinkers. We wondered why we didn’t see more Asian faces active in the freethinking movement. Yau Man Chan‘s theory is that culturally many Asians don’t want to rock the boat, and prefer to keep their heads down. …

Where are the Asian Faces of Freethought?

Freethought is an ancient Asian tradition.

This quote from John Xu… “I have often remarked how little interest people of my ethnicity have for secularist and freethought issues. My theory is that this is because they are the product of very complicated and difficult social, political, and intellectual turmoils of the 20th Century. Most Chinese people I know are brought up with …

In the wreckage left behind by recent tornadoes, Oklahoma atheist Rhonda Dorle sought to help her neighbors salvage what they could from what the tornado left behind. She and other atheists volunteered their time, and worked side by side with others regardless of what they believed or didn’t. Unfortunately when it was revealed that they …

Apparently, I cheesed off Ken Ham

You have to let Ham's god do the thinking.

  I’ve even gotten comments to the effect of why can I not leave poor Ken Ham alone. All for criticizing his visit to a Texas home school conference to sell people on his supposed advantages of teaching their children Young Earth Creationism over actual science. He responded on his facebook with this challenge…  This …

Gaslighting -shaming women for emotional reactions and for speaking up.

Before I heard of the word “gaslighting”, I had difficulty articulating why I shouldn’t be shamed for getting angry or upset at someone else’s behavior.  And then I read this article about it… I want to introduce a helpful term to identify these reactions: gaslighting. Gaslighting is a term, often used by mental health professionals …

If you are up for a protest of Ken Ham; he will be in Texas promoting Creationism to homeschoolers

More urban parts of Houston are diluted with suburban areas.

Ken Ham was asked by the Texas Home School Coalition, the most prominent home school lobby in Texas, to speak at their convention on Aug 1 through 3. While I agree with the right to home school, if it is done by parents, who are educated in the subject they are teaching, or if they aren’t, have …
