About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

The Origin of Consciousness (or Theory of Mind)

Long review of Origin Of Consciousness In The Breakdown Of The Bicameral Mind, which was a pretty important book for me in my unwinding of religion's hold on me. (Not because it is necessarily true, but because it was an explanation of how minds could evolve without the intervention of a god.)

Found in the comments of Kevin Drum's post, Do You Think In Words? Not Everyone Does
