Though he is mainly known for blowing stuff up on TV, Adam Savage is a serious skeptic, atheist, and freethinker in the scientific community. His short and engaging speech at the Reason Rally in Washington D.C. last week (a gathering of over 20,000 supporters of science and critical thinking) was right on the money: you can live a fulfilled life without superstition (at least that’s what I took away from it). Savage is in a great position to be an effective science communicator, and I am happy that he supports reason above all else. Shouldn’t you?
