Friendly Atheist Podcast Episode 42: Peter Boghossian, Author of A Manual for Creating Atheists

Our latest podcast guest is Peter Boghossian, author of the book A Manual for Creating Atheists.

Boghossian is a philosophy professor at Portland State University and his book discusses the idea of “street epistemology” — essentially how to talk people out of their faith. He’s currently working on a phone app that’ll guide people through that process.

We spoke with him about why his approach isn’t just “atheist evangelism,” why smart people can believe silly things, and whether his techniques work on his own children in other areas of life.

You can see his upcoming speaking engagements here.
