Dr. Jordan B. Peterson is a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, a clinical psychologist and the author of the multi-million copy bestseller 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, #1 for nonfiction in 2018 in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, the Netherlands, Brazil and Norway, and now slated for translation into 50 languages.

When asked if he believes in God, Jordan Peterson responded: "I think the proper response to that is No, but I'm afraid He might exist".[1] In 2019, the New York Post published an article Jordan Peterson enters rehab after wife’s cancer diagnosis which indicated "The “12 Rules for Life” author has sought help trying to get off the anti-anxiety drug clonazepam".[2] See also: Atheism and anxiety and Atheism and mental toughness

In a 2018 interview with CBC News, University of Toronto psychology professor Bernard Schiff, formerly a supporter of Peterson's, rhetorically claimed that Peterson was "dangerous" and that he was encouraging "misogyny" among his following.[3] When posted to YouTube, the CBC's video of the interview was heavily ratioed and criticized, with it receiving an average of a fraction over 11 dislikes for every like it received (presently over 22,000 dislikes vs. less than 2,000 likes), while commentors pointed out, among other criticisms, Peterson's comments and opinions being intentionally taken out of context and misrepresented by Schiff and CBC News reporter Wendy Mesley (who conducted the interview) as well as unprofessional journalism on the network's part.
