Sam Mulvey: The Rise of the Nones

Local atheist activist Sam Mulvey will be speaking on the rise of the "nones," or those who claim no religious affiliation. What can we expect as atheism gains in prominence and how might the movement need to change to welcome these new people in?

Sam makes his home in Tacoma with Becky, their two enormous cats, and a great number of electronics. An atheist grown from a long line of agnostics, Sam was shocked by poor media coverage of atheists while collaborating with co-creators Mike, Casey, and Jeremy to make Ask An Atheist a reality. Besides hosting, Sam organizes AaA events in the Tacoma area and is responsible for most of the post-production on radio episodes. He sits on the board of directors of Humanists of Washington, and is a former board member of Seattle Atheists. In his imaginary off-time, he brews beer and plays with ham radio. In the Star Trek or Star Wars dichotomy, Sam chose Babylon 5. He is a collector of vinegar varieties, vintage computers, antique radios, and propaganda. Also, Sam likes puffins.

    Forget Syria. The bigger fish to fry is Japan. They are poisoning the world’s fisheries in the whole Pacific Ocean. Sept. 4, 2013: Reuters, WASHINGTON - Three influential pro-Israel groups urged US lawmakers on Tuesday to authorize US President Barack Obama to launch an attack on Syria, signaling a stepped-up lobbying effort for American military action.

    The statements by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) represented the groups' most public show of support for US military action since the Aug. 21 attack near Damascus in which Syria's government is accused of using chemical weapons to kill more than 1,400 people.
