This episode of A Matter of Doubt features an interview with Noah Lugeons, host of the incredibly hilarious podcast, The Scathing Atheist. Noah tells his story of being raised by his parents with a complete lack of religion. But later in his life, his mother fell seriously ill and his father turned to the church for support. Noah witnessed a man he has known and loved his whole life, go from content, to a curmudgeonly old man. This changed Noah’s attitude toward religion from being somewhat apathetic, to anti-theist. Noah says that revealed religion will always be a problem because it gives fallible human beings the authority of God.
