Today, I want to highlight my favorite podcast, The Scathing Atheist.
This podcast is by atheists and for atheists. There are plenty of podcasts that try to appeal to atheist and theist to start conversations between the two. This is NOT one of those podcasts!
**Warning: This show is not for the easily offended or children. There is an abundance of profanity and crude humor.**
Episodes are an hour in length and are released each Thursday. It is hosted by Noah Lugeons and Heath Enright.
They cover news articles related to religion and do it in a hilarious way! It will keep you laughing all the way through. Other segments in the show include:
-This Week in Misogyny
-The Holy Babel
Sometimes they conduct interviews and movie reviews. So, if you’re an atheist and want to hear an atheist perspective on different news topics and you want to laugh at religion, this is your podcast! Below is a diatribe (one of the best parts of the show):
Today’s shout out goes to one of my favorite YouTuber’s, The Messianic Manic. His videos usually range from 2 to 7 minutes in length. The videos deal with counter-apologetics and philosophy. He always presents great arguments and counters the arguments of apologists with finesse. Here is an excellent recent video.
Check out his channel (link below).

I plan to do a short “shout out” post each Sunday. I want to highlight some of my favorite bloggers, YouTuber’s, and podcasters.
Today’s shout out goes to Bruce Gerencser. He writes a blog discussing his life, religion, politics, and skepticism.
He was a pastor for many years before becoming an atheist later in life. While I have never met Bruce, I consider him a friend. He came out of the Independent Fundamental Baptist segment of Christianity as did I. This is a very unique brand of Christianity that you have to be involved with to understand. Bruce’s insights into fundamental/ evangelical Christianity are always spot on and informative.
Here is an excerpt from his recent post entitled You are Wrong!!
The Bible has the unique ability to be whatever a person wants it to be. Most people have a bit of Thomas Jefferson in them, scissors in hand, cutting out the things they disagree with or the things that weaken their positions or beliefs. The short of it is this…if you need to prove something, go to the Bible. You will likely find the answer you are looking for.
It was through reading his blog which has helped me to become more open about my atheism.
So, what are you waiting for?? Go check out his blog!
