Inquisitive Minds Podcast Critical Thinking on History, Religion, Politics and Culture

In our third and last podcast dedicated to the "The Second Wave of the New Atheism. A Manifesto for Secular Scriptural Scholarship and Religious Studies", we will answer as to why the authors have framed their manifesto in the context of the New Atheism. This question was asked several times by some of our listeners. We would like to discuss how Avalos and Gagné respond to people who think the manifesto should not be associated to the New Atheism.

This week again, we examine the manifesto written by Hector Avalos and André Gagné entitled: "The Second Wave of the New Atheism. A Manifesto for Secular Scriptural Scholarship and Religious Studies." We invite scholars of religion or scriptural studies who share some of the ideas and would like to become signatories, to contact the authors at the information found on the manifesto's website accessible here.

Happy New Year to all our listeners! We are back with a new episode of the Inquisitive Minds Podcast. This week, we discuss Part 1 of a manifesto written by Hector Avalos and André Gagné entitled: "The Second Wave of the New Atheism. A Manifesto for Secular Scriptural Scholarship and Religious Studies." The piece was first published on January 7, 2016 on the Bible and Interpretation website. We now have a permanent page where you can find the manifesto and the signatories who have recently endorsed it (read the statement here). Scholars of religion or scriptural studies who share some of the ideas and would like to become signatories, can contact the authors at the information found on the website.
