On this episode, hosts Dan Arel and Sean Taylor discuss atheism with American Atheists president and author of Fighting God, Dave Silverman.

We discuss the importance of calling yourself and atheist and how using the term is a form of activism and is the morally right thing to do. We also look at alternatives put forth by others such as abandoning the term atheism and arguing that we live in a “post-theist” world.

Many people use alternative labels such as “secular humanist” to soften the blow of their nonbelief in gods, instead of owning the atheist label along with the others.

We also look at alternatives put forth by others such as abandoning the term atheism and arguing that we live in a “post-theist” world.
