American Atheists: Positive Extremism

Speaker:  David Silverman, American Atheists

American Atheists has launched an advertising campaign decidedly and deliberately more poignant than those of other organizations in the movement.  What is our strategy, and how is it going so far?

David Silverman, president of American Atheists, has been an atheist since he was 6 years old.  Following a traditional Jewish education (including a Bar Mitzvah), he attended Brandeis University, where he completed his Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science while honing his debating skills with theists in numerous informal debates.  After earning his MBA from Penn State, he married one of the Brandeis theistic debate opponents. They currently have a 20-year "mixed marriage" and a daughter, who is following in Dad's atheist footsteps.

Mr. Silverman has appeared on most major news programs including The O'Reilly Factor, Scarborough Country, The Situation with Wolf Blitzer, CNN' Paula Zahn NOW, Nick News, Hannity and Colmes, Fox and Friends, CN8's It's Your Call, and  NPR's All Things Considered.  David runs the NoGodBlog and hosts the Atheist Viewpoint TV show

Ethics-based Sunday school for children is offered simultaneously.

    Dave Silverman gave a combative presentation and answered strongly worded questions afterwards.

    Fiery! That David Silverman certainly speaks his mind! A few in the audience took extreme exception to some of his remarks and a lively debate ensued. Others roundly applauded him.
