“Religious Philosophy” Mark Boyd interviewed on KVPR

Christianity in the California Central Valley gets a lot of attention.  In this August 2009 program Terry Phillips interviews guests with different perspectives.  

These guests include Reverend Kurt Rye of the Fresno Buddhist Temple; Amanda Peterson, President, Board of Trustees of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fresno; and Mark Boyd, President & Co/Founder of the Central Valley Alliance of Atheists and Skeptics.

During Mark’s interview, Terry asks what is an atheist and what is a skeptic.  And Mark explains the beginnings of the atheist visibility movement, and why the motto “In God We Trust” is exclusive of some citizens, while the motto “E pluribus unum” is inclusive of all Americans.

Terry Phillips is no longer with Valley Public Radio, and his show, “Quality of Life” is off the air.  However, you can listen to archived shows of “Quality of Life” through the Internet Archive.

One day Mark wanted to talk to other atheists in Fresno. So he set up a Meetup.com atheist event. Five people arrived at the very first event in late 2002. Everything that followed was a result of that.
