Rob Penczak

Rob Penczak is a physician turned writer and secular activist. As a physician with undergrad training in cellular biology, he was exposed to the rudiments of statistical analysis and became well acquainted with the value of the scientific method and peer-reviewed journals. And as a writer, despite his passion for creating fantastical worlds, he never confused fiction for reality. Thus, as social discourse in America devolved to the point where revisionist historians could step from the fringe and political elites dared cast ‘reality-based-community’ as a pejorative, Rob decided to enter the public sphere and join with those who were already working to restore some kindness and sanity to the world. In this capacity, he now serves as President of Richmond Humanists; Founder of SavedByScience; Host and Co-producer of Road to Reason; and Executive Director of the Atheist Alliance of America.
