Fighting God is a fire­b­rand mani­festo from one of the most reco­gniz­ab­le faces of athe­ism. In this talk based on his forth­co­m­ing book, Sil­ver­man – a wal­king, tal­king athe­ist bill­board known for his appearan­ces on US tele­vi­si­on – dis­cus­ses the effec­tiveness, ethics and impact of the in-your-face athe­ist who refu­ses to be silent.

Sil­ver­man argues that reli­gi­on is more than just wrong: it is malevo­lent and does not deser­ve our respect. It is our duty to be outs­po­ken and do what we can to bring reli­gi­on down. Exami­ning the men­ta­li­ty, methods and issu­es facing the fire­b­rand athe­ist, Sil­ver­man reveals uncom­for­ta­ble truths about reli­gi­on as well as some of the lies that many of us com­for­ta­b­ly igno­re.

Silverman’s pro­vo­ca­ti­ve, una­po­lo­ge­tic approach to reli­gi­on will give inspi­ra­ti­on to non-belie­vers and ser­ve as the ulti­ma­te ans­wer to apo­lo­gists.
