Atheism, Old and New

Atheism seems to be quite self explanatory term. Granted, we do live in atheistic societies, in the sense that religion in the proper sense of the word is almost completely ejected from political and cultural deliberations. Even more so, this applies to academia. Finally, at least half of the peoples which we could still, at least by their geographical situation or ancestry, call Europeans are actually shedding the residues of their religious past.

Yet, are we to blame this on atheists of our age, especially the so called "new atheists"?

In this podcast we'll answer this question in the firm negative.
