I’ve done an interview with the “Cognitive Dissonance” podcast — mostly about my new book Coming Out Atheist: How to Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why — and the show is now up! We talk about how coming out as an atheist brings other atheists in our lives out of the woodwork; the phenomenon of “soft atheists” and people who don’t believe in religion but don’t feel comfortable using the language; why it’s important to use clear language when we discuss our non-belief; how coming out atheist makes atheism seem more ordinary; what the experience of collecting “coming out atheist” stories was like and what surprised me about them; the incredible diversity of coming out experiences and how that affected putting together the book; book cover art and graphic design; and more.
The show hosts, Cecil and Tom, also talk about an ex-Navy chaplain who thinks un-biblical gun laws make California “vulnerable” to invasion by Japan, and what (some) Christians are saying about openly gay NFL player Michael Sam. Cecil and Tom are fun to talk with, chatty and casual while also getting into tricky and complicated ideas. Enjoy!
