Donald B. Ardell, Ph.D.
Don Ardell is a secular humanist infidel free-thinker who lectures, writes and prosyletizes in an entertaining and convincing way about strategies to increase physical well-being and quality of life. Published in Free Inquiry and by Prometheus Books (The Book of Wellness: A Secular Approach to Spirituality, Meaning and Purpose), Don directs the country's largest Wellness Center, produces a newsletter, a blog and a daily column on REAL wellness. He also is featured in numerous secular humanist publications, the Canadian Fitness Report and The Political Junkie.
Since 1984, Don has produced 74 quarterly Reports, 460 newsletters and 14 books, his latest being Aging Beyond Belief: 69 Tips For REAL Wellness. Don describes REAL wellness as a lifestyle, a mindset and a philosophy based upon reason, exuberance and liberty - for enhanced quality of life.
Don is a mellow, sensitive, kind and compassionate fellow, but he loves to stir up excitement and controversy among the devout and conventional. His blog illuminates the relevance of a life-enhancing mindset to the three topics everyone cares about but most hesitate to address in polite society, namely, politics, sex and religion. The blog is a forum for his skeptical, funny, godless view of lifestyle artistry — living well in a superstitious, irrational world.
Donran for mayor of Tampa as the oldest, fittest, fastest and prettiest of all the candidates on a well city platform based on four themes: make Tampa functional, free, fit and fun.
Don has addressed conventions all over the world for over 20 years, describing in entertaining ways the nature and applications of REAL wellness, DBRU equivalents, icantdoit realities and self-management for business and personal successes, especially for those like himself who have no use for gods, supernatural phenomena or other escapes from personal responsibility and critical thinking.

Taner Edis was born in Istanbul, 1967, to Turkish and American parents. After completing his undergraduate work at Boğaziçi University, he received his Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University in 1994, in theoretical and computational condensed matter physics. Working in diverse areas, from atmospheric modeling with collaborators at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to the philosophy of machine intelligence, he is currently associate professor of physics at Truman State University, Kirksville, MO.
Fascinated by the plethora of supernatural and fringe science beliefs around him, and concerned about the rise of Islamist politics back in Turkey, Edis first got involved with skeptical inquiry into religious and paranormal claims during his graduate studies. He has since written and spoken extensively on such subjects, particularly on the topic of anti-evolutionary thought. His writing has characteristically combined scientific rigor with an ability to reach a broad audience.
Edis's first book, The Ghost in the
Universe: God in
Light of Modern
Science, an accessible defense of a naturalistic view of the world, was published by Prometheus Books, and received the Morris D. Forkosch award for "best humanist book of 2002." With Matt Young, he co-edited Why Intelligent Design Fails: A Scientific Critique of the New Creationism (Rutgers University Press, 2004). In 2006, his Science and Nonbelief (Greenwood Press) appeared. Most recently, he wrote An Illusion of Harmony: Science and Religion in Islam (Prometheus Books, 2007), which is a unique examination of science, religion and pseudoscience in a Muslim context.
While working on his writing, Edis also finds devious ways to get his students to understand physics, serves as a slave to some very self-satisfied cats, and grumbles about his wife being away at conferences too often. He is also a great fan of science fiction, where playing fast and loose with the laws of physics is not only acceptable, but positively fun.
