Host, The Atheist Experience

Matt Dillahunty

Matt Dillahunty (born March 31, 1969) is the current host of the webcast and cable access television show "The Atheist Experience", and from 2006 to 2013 served as the president of the Atheist Community of Austin. He is also a founder of the comprehensive counter-apologetics Wiki "Iron Chariots".

Dillahunty is an outspoken atheist and fierce advocate of the concept of separation of church and state. Having been raised as a fundamentalist Baptist and having studied with the intent of going to seminary and becoming a minister before his bout of apostasy, Dillahunty is familiar with the Christian fundamentalist mindset, and very knowledgeable about both the history and the text of the Bible. While not formally educated in any scientific field, it's clear from watching his shows that he has amassed enough of a working knowledge of biology, cosmology, and geology to defend these fields from creationists, including Ray Comfort. Dillahunty does not claim to have any expertise in any of these fields and will frequently admit that his knowledge is limited, even as he soundly schools creationists who declare their own willful ignorance of science.
