Do They Really Believe That?

Featuring: Matt Dillahunty · At: Center for Inquiry · Topic(s): , , ,

Matt Dillahunty is a public speaker and Internet personality who has been hosting The Atheist Experience, a live, call-in television show, for more than 11 years. Having engaged in thousands of conversations over the years, challenging assumptions and opening minds, Matt looks back and reflects on some of the difficulties he’s encountered and the lessons he’s learned.

Before discovering skepticism and humanism, Dillahunty spent 25 years as a Southern Baptist with ambitions of becoming a minister. In this talk at CFI headquarters in Amherst, New York, on May 13th 2016, he discusses how we all have firmly held beliefs that we will discover to be false at some point in our lives, and how we can have meaningful conversations with people who hold beliefs different then our own.
