I talked with Zachary Moore about his spiritual path and professional work. Zachary grew up in a strict, fundamentalist Protestant family and read the Bible multiple times under his father's instruction. He became a socially conservative Christian until he took a class on the Bible as literature and learned that other traditions have the same stories that the Bible contains. Thus, he shifted from believing the Bible was divinely inspired to knowing the Bible is the work of man. He set about to learn Truth outside of the context of the Bible and he discovered the power of science and free thought. I learned how to use evidence and make persuasive arguments while avoiding common logical fallacies. He obtained a Ph.D. in Biology and now preaches humanist values. We talked about the Ten Commandments from the perspective of scientific reasoning and Free Thought.
