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.
