A Science Enthusiast is creating some secular and science stuff!

Who I am:

I’m Dan Broadbent, and at the beginning of 2015, I made a public blog on Facebook called A Science Enthusiast. Later that year, I made the website, aScienceEnthusiast.com, but before that, I made a group called The Science Enthusiasts. I made these to share my love of science, spread rational thought, post the dankest of memes, and most importantly, create a community for skeptics to gather and make new, like-minded friends. It's incredibly important to me that fellow atheists, secularists, and those questioning their religious beliefs have a fun, friendly, and supportive community so they know that they are not alone in a world  that feels dominated by religion. As of today, I have nearly 800,000 followers on the blog's Facebook page, and we have nearly 40,000 members in our discussion group!

In May 2016, my good friend Natalie and I created a podcast called The Science Enthusiast Podcast (FB page), and you can find the full archives here. You can support the podcast's patreon here. (This project is currently paused as of Winter 2018.)

Multi-platform drifting following:

My personal Facebook - @aSciEnthusiast
Twitter - @aSciEnthusiast
Instagram - @aSciEnthusiast

The websites:

aScienceEnthusiast.com - My main blog website!
SkepticalKitten.com - A cat/pet themed website with some science/skepticism content, too!
Alternative-Science.com - A satire website covering things from science, pop culture, and politics
... And more to come in the future!

If that’s not enough, I have quite a few other projects on the Facebook.

My other pages:

We Believe in Nihilism - a casual pop-culture nihilism page that we take extremely seriously.
Alternative Science - a satire page, the bizzaro Science Enthusiast.
A Tardigrade - formerly known as Inspirational Tardigrade, this page posts demotivational-type quotes, commentary on social justice issues, and the occasional inspirational quote.
Skeptical Kitten - a cat page with a skeptical/secular twist, we post cat memes and sprinkle in some science/skepticism/atheism content now and then.
Skeptical Doggo - like Skeptical Kitten, only with dogs.
Cute Nopes - a page dedicated to all things that are cute but also make you say NOPE
Cats in Space Quoting Scientists - a page where Matthew (Credible Hulk) and I post pictures of cats, in space, who are quoting scientists.
Esteemed Space Guy Memes - All things Elon Musk and SpaceX related!
... And more!


And then there's the groups:

The Science Enthusiasts - With over 38,000 members, we call this “tSE” (Currently archived as of Winter 2018)
The Political Science Enthusiasts - A politically-themed version of tSE for those already in tSE
The Science Enthusiasts Dank Meme Stash - A 26,000+ member memery to end all memeries, where we peer-review memes for their dankness. (This group is secret, ask a VIP admin to join.)
Another Nihilism™ Facebook Group - A nihilism-themed group, not really tSE-esque, but beautiful in its own special way.
Esteemed Space Guy Memes - The Group - Everything Elon Musk/SpaceX related.

Why support me?

Because you're awesome! You can help me continue posting unique, fun, and entertaining content across all these platforms. You'll help me to continue to devote 100% of my "work" time to creating/curating content, as well as expanding the 'aSE' network. You'll also help me to hire writers and other content creators, financially supporting their craft, as well as helping us post even more high quality content!

We'll also send you some aSE swag, depending on your patron level, and we'll even do a monthly Google Hangout if there's interest.

One-time donation?

If you'd rather make a one-time donation, you can do so via PayPal, or check out the shirts and stickers in my online store!

Thank you so much for your support!
