The Scathing Atheist is a weekly podcast dedicated to the harshest of criticisms against faith and religion. Firmly entrenched in our conviction that truth and rationality are virtues worth fighting for, we feel no need to apologize for our venomous characterizations of religion and its role in society.
What’s more, we firmly support the right of every man and woman to worship whatever sky-buddy they choose to, but only if it comes with the caveat that every man and woman has an equal right to say that Jesus sucks dingo balls. And he does.
We promise to keep the faithless entertained and informed while keeping believers infuriated and annoyed. We promise to shine the light of reason on the unwiped crevasse of blind allegiance. We promise to treat the rampant encroachment of superstition into our government and culture with the type of acidity and incivility it deserves. We promise to refute the feeble intellectual defenses offered for devoting oneself to sophomoric, antiquated mythology. And we promise to do all of that while still maintaining a liberal dosage of fart jokes.
Hopefully, in so doing we can accomplish 2 goals. The first, clearly, is to push religion further into the margins of civilization. The second, and far more realistic, is to draw some of the trolls away from the more qualified and educated bloggers so that they won’t have to waste their time deciphering the grammatical jack-assery that betrays the true believer.
