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...

Can we agree that an education is a basic human right?

In an information based society, undereducated children are at a disadvantage. Besides a mind is a terrible thing to waste, right? Here is my speech at The Houston Museum of Science hosted by Houston Atheists in defense of accurate science education for everyone. It had a pretty good turnout of 250 which was the capacity …

Underneath it’s all the same love

I was surprised to hear a powerful song on mainstream radio about LGBT rights for one thing. But then the song is also openly anti-religious too. When I thought about it how can a song about how harsh the world is to LGBT people be anything but anti-religious in order to speak the truth? The …

Some Insights from Bridgett “Bria” Crutchfield and Alix Jules on being a Black atheist

Recently I had the opportunity to listen to Bridgett “Bria” Crutchfield and Alix Jules tell their stories about growing up in the black community which can be very religious and adjusting to the atheist community. Bridgett asked me during the discussion if I understood what they go through. For video link click on the title.

I can’t believe I shook Eric Hovind’s hand

I also thanked him for being polite, while he interviewed the group. Evolution supporters had gathered to demonstrate in Houston against creationism being taught as science. I consented to Hovind interviewing me on the condition he didn’t cut the video. However, he weaseled out of his promise by posting the entire interview and then cutting …

The only minority Juror B29 leaves justice for Trayvon up to god.

Get your barf bags ready if there is a book deal.

As if the George Zimmerman acquittal is not galling enough already. I wonder if there was a secular jury, if we would have had the same result? At least they wouldn’t be pointing to an invisible deity hoping to absolve themselves of responsibility for justice for Trayvon Martin. And I quote… “George Zimmerman got away …

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 …

Actually Ken Ham: It’s Great to be an Ape

I was invited by Dallas’s Fellowship of Freethought to speak about creationism with the Mister Ra. Aron spoke about his disappointment at Ham’s response about wisdom teeth not being proof of anything that contradicts the biblical account of Genesis.

Support Senator Davis’s Filibuster against Texas SB 5: restricting women’s access to abortion.

Go Wendy!

It is live streaming now, and she is in trouble. The Texas Senate is deciding if she broke the rules by accepting a back brace from a colleague. If she survives this ruling, she has until midnight to block the vote on SB5. It will most likely give her 2 warnings and she has 3 …

Atheist goodwill not good enough for some Oklahomans

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 …
