Cass and Bob interview Anthony Magnabosco. Anthony practices and teaches a discipline called “street epistemology.” He investigates the origin and formation of people’s god-beliefs, of those he meets on the street who are willing to talk to him about that on camera. His YouTube channel contains videos of Anthony doing Street Epistemology and has over 10,000 subscribers. He was inspired by Dr. Peter Begosian’s book, “A Manual for Creating Atheists,” which is NOT just about deconverting people, it’s about truly listening, respectfully to another human being’s strongly held beliefs, and investigating the source of their confidence.

I kind of think that you guys somewhat missed the point with Anthony. SE is engaging a person for his beliefs and perhaps also coming away with perhaps your beliefs swayed. I thought you should have asked Anthony what percent hes sure that God doesnt exist. Whereas you guys may say 100%, I doubt you'd get more than an 80% from him. It seems to me 100% either way isnt very healthy. Nonetheless enjoy your podcasts, and his youtube.
