Mythicist Milwaukee featured in Milwaukee Magazine Opinion Piece

The August edition of Milwaukee Magazine included a risky perspective article by now-openly atheist Mario Quadracci titled, "Faith No More: A skeptic rejects what cannot be proved." Mythicist Milwaukee co-founder Sean Fracek was quoted in the article talking about Milwaukee's atheist community and the upcoming Mythinformation Conference II. The magazine took a risk publishing an openly secular article like this, and we are grateful to see it covered in a mainstream publication. Please show your support by commenting on or sharing the original article. We hope to see more like it in the future!
