Mr. Gleason was raised in a secular family, but went to church as a part of the family culture. His parents were a doctor and a speech therapist. Mr. Gleason admits that as a youth, his curiosity about religion and the unbelievable stories herein sent him on a quest for 'nature's truth' without the bounds of the supernatural. Bruce started reading about Islam and Christianity after 9-11 and has read over 3 dozen books from many secular authors. He considers himself a religious scholar of no faith. He calls himself an anti-theist, one who is plainly against superstitious beliefs. It has been shown that those countries which have a more percentage of believers have much lower 'societal health'. Religion harms the individual and society physically, emotionally, financially and psychologically. An atheist world-view which supports science and critical thinking is directly correlated with societal health.
