Ben Fama Jr., director of the upcoming film “A Reason to Believe,” holds nothing back in his online videos: He is brash, given to creative swearing and utterly unapologetic about his atheism.
“I’m a very outspoken person and I say I what I think,” Fama said. “I’ve debated many people over these topics. I’m not afraid to step on a few toes.”
My wife and I had a chance to visit Los Angeles a few days ago to interview Associate Professor Jennifer Whitson from UCLA for our upcoming documentary film about beliefs. While we were there, we decided to go check out a museum that makes claims about the "harm" in the field of psychiatry. I wasn't about to leave until I saw this place. Most people know that this is just a Scientology propaganda museum posing as a "human rights" organization. But we wanted to see for ourselves what all the madness was about.Read More
There is a rising cult in our country from people who think they can be armchair loudmouths about being "antiscience". I see a lot of people in this community (Sedona, AZ) who seem to do the same thing. It's okay to have an opposing point of view, even in science, the ideas are brutally challenged. This helps weed out the bad ideas from the good ones. And there are a lot of bad ideas.Read More
There is an old saying that if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. So when it comes to questioning belief systems, whether they are religious in nature or conspiracy theories, it flies in the face of conventional thinking that maybe these systems could be wrong.Read More
There are chains, in everyone's minds, that stops us from moving forward with our lives. We all have them, whether we realize or not.
The question is, why it's so hard for some of us to break free from these mental chains. It doesn't matter if you are trying to be a better mom or build a successful company. It doesn't matter if you trying to find love or lose weight. It doesn't matter if you are fighting against bad ideas or outdated thinking.Read More
"My enemies are my coach, they teach me how to be strong and wise."
I am not sure of the original person of that quote, but in my own life it rings very true. Recently, friend and fellow filmmaker Betsy Chasse (What The Bleep Do We Know?) wrote an article in the Huffington Post entitled "Crossing Enemy Lines", where she talks about her encountering me as a skeptic and atheist who quote "pretty much despised like with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns despised everything I held dear".Read More
My, how much has changed in such a short period of time. It's amazing to look back on your beliefs and see how far you've come when you've challenged them. It really was't that long ago when I saw my worldview much diffrent than I do today. It's amazing how much I have learned. I want to present to you a blog I wrote in 2011 called "Wake The Fuck Up. And Tell Your Friends." This is when I still considered my self a "spiritual" person. Although now I don't hold these beliefs, I just want to show the world that it is okay to be wrong, and that there is a power in being wrong, to find truth, and change what you believe about it. So here is my rant about a "spiritual awakening".Read More
