About David G. McAfee

If you want to support skeptical/scientific/secular news and books, you're in the right place! For more than a decade I've covered all things at the intersection of religion and science, at times breaking worldwide stories on my Patheos blog. By contributing here, you're allowing me to continue this work. And if I get enough support, I'll be launching a new streaming TV series, as well. Details on that below:

For years, I've been told I should post YouTube videos or start using some other streaming service. And for years, I thought it was a good idea but put it off because of the initial start-up costs. I couldn't necessarily afford to spend hundreds of dollars on equipment, especially when I wasn't sure I'd be able to get that money back through monetization. Enter The Satanic Temple, which offered me a TV show on their streaming Network, The Satanic Temple TV. I decided to accept this show, which I've called "What In The Pseudoscience Is This?" Next, still needing help to make it happen, I decided to turn to the most amazing friends and fans in the world: you. If you can contribute anything toward the show, I'd appreciate it! And you might just get a little perk for yourself. :)

David G. McAfee is a Religious Studies graduate, journalist, and author of The Curious Person's Guide to Fighting Fake NewsNo Sacred Cows: Investigating Myths, Cults, and the SupernaturalAtheist Answers: Rational Responses to Religious Questions, The Book of Gods, The Belief Book, and Disproving Christianity and other Secular Writings.
