Meet the contributors!

Christina
My name is Christina, though some of you might know me from my blog as Ziztur. I’ve written several guest posts over here and am probably most famously known for being the other half in JT’s polyamory escapades. I hail from St. Louis city, Missouri.

JT describes me as the most unique person he knows, though I don’t personally feel particularly unique – I just feel like myself.

I’m educated (I have a doctoral degree in occupational therapy. Primarily I do research, but to avoid ivory-tower syndrome, I also work in the field as a clinician. You can call me Dr. Christina if you like, though I usually don’t go for that sort of thing), atheist (raised secular, I declared myself an atheist after taking an evidence-based research class in graduate school and deciding to apply the principals learned in said class to the god question), mentally ill (I am diagnosed with depersonalization/derealization disorder and attention-deficit disorder), modified (I’ve been tattooed, pierced, suspended, and implanted) am a champion cuddler, and occasionally enjoy writing superfluously long sentences.  I tweet @Ziztur.

As a leisure activity, I enjoy finding the most inane news articles on published scientific research, downloading the actual journal article, and analyzing the content for your reading pleasure.  I especially dig research on alternative medicine or mental illness. As you might imagine, science writers for media outlets rarely get the science correct.

I am a skeptical liberal ignostic strong atheist existentialist absurdist desirist determinist naturalist ubuntu secular humanist.

I’ll write about atheism, alternative medicine vs science-based medicine, statistics, disability, tattoos, sex (!), the borderlands of science, logic, and unrelated things that catch my fancy and are worthy of your eyes and brain. Sometimes I’ll also do crazy things like swallow homeopathic sleeping pills for Youtube stunts.

Lastly, I love being proven wrong. Being proven wrong gives me prudence to change.

Dr. David Burger
“Dr. Dave is the most effective and innovative activist you’ve never heard of.” ~ JT

My name is David and I’m here to recruit you.

JT says people ask him about how to be an atheist activist. There isn’t a secret. You just do it. Even if it’s just you and one idiot friend with no sense between the two of you. Even if if it’s just you. Just get out there and do it.

I can only promise you that it will feel terrifying and awkward and weird the first 17 or so times you get out as an atheist activist among the general public. After that you’ll get the hang of it.

Read my first post on WWJTD, where I delve deeper into how I met JT.

You can find me on twitter, @DrDavidBurger

I recruit in Kansas City, http://www.kcatheists.org/

I don’t contribute much.  I mostly write when JT and I are on a road trip or something.  But I’m fierce.  Grrrrrrr!

JT did not write this bio.
