Irreligiosophy means “the wisdom of irreligion” — it is about questioning dogmas handed down uncritically to us and researching into the history, practice, and theology of various religions. It’s about scrutinizing religious claims with a skeptical eye and placing them in historical perspective. But ultimately, Irreligiosophy 2.0 is really about arming atheists to wage the culture war with arguments and reason. We focus on Christianity because that is the religion that we are most confronted by in our daily lives, but we see all religion and all irrationality as threats to the continued advancement of knowledge, progress, and social justice.

Fantasic

Chuck and Leighton are great at examining religious issues from a skeptical perspective while somehow entertaining you along the way. Please come back! Matt’s ok too - any haunted house business recommendations?

Downhill Ride

The podcast was great at the start and then it got really bad later when a new host came in. Thankfully the flow of episodes slowed down to one a year.

Skunked

I’m not certain why Chuck and Matt gave up on this podcast. Good riddance. Does Kent Hovind have a podcast I can listen to?
