Frank Zindler


A former professor of biology and geology (SUNY system), for twenty years, Frank Zindler was a close associate of Madalyn Murray O'Hair. A member of the governing board of American Atheists since the early 80s, he served as interim president of the organization in 2008. After the murder of O'Hair and her family in 1995, he has served as editor of American Atheist Press.

Frank is a veteran of over 400 commercial radio and TV talk shows and debates and is widely recognized as one of the most effective debaters defending state-church separation, evolution education, abortion, and equality. Forced to end a twenty-year career in education when he joined Madalyn Murray O'Hair in a lawsuit to remove religious mottoes from US currency, he has worked for 36 years as a linguist and analyst of chemical research documents for a learned society in Ohio.

An Atheist activist for over sixty years, he hopes to publish his recently completed autobiography, "Confessions of a Born-Again Atheist: The Implausible Lives of a Godless Guy."
