Deep In The Bible Belt --
One Atheist Professor's Experience
By Prof. William W. Zellner
William Zellner, Ph.D, a subscriber to Freethought Today, is a noted sociologist and professor at East Central University, Oklahoma. His recent book on cults in America, "Countercultures"--examining such deviant subcultures as Skinheads, KKK, Scientology, Survivalists and Moonies--is published by St. Martin's Press and was selected for the elite list of books the publisher offers to popular bookstores.
"Countercultures" provides an in-depth look at the commonly held beliefs of cultists. Zellner personally investigated his subjects. He is also author of the fifth edition of "Extraordinary Groups: An Examination of Unconventional Life-styles," used in as many as 600 universities and colleges.
He holds a bachelor's degree in liberal arts and a master's degree in sociology from Western Illinois University. He earned a doctorate in sociology from South Dakota State University. He joined the ECU faculty in 1985. Zellner was recently elected to a second term as president of the Association for the Scientific Study of Religion, and is past president of the Oklahoma Sociological Association.
