Dan Barker: A Former Charismatic Evangelist with Intellectual Integrity

Posted by Clamence/The Chaplain on February 1, 2010

I am currently reading a book titled Godless: How an Evangelical Preacher Became One of America’s Leading Atheists by Dan Barker, co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation. It’s a great read. His personal story is extremely interesting, as he was quite a big name in Christian circles; he wrote a few Christian musicals that were widely disseminated, and he was very involved in Christian music production. He was also a hardcore evangelist who traveled to Mexico a fair amount from a very young age. You can read his biography by clicking on his name above.

    Fantastic Dan, We need more reason and less superstition, Australia is run by political parties who have a bias against reason and knowledge, very discouraging for scientific endeavor.

    Knowledge of common origins and evolution could save the world from religious conflict

    Australian political bias against science
