Hemant Mehta - The Friendly Atheist

Hemant Mehta (the Friendly Atheist) Interview

Hemant Mehta, The Friendly Atheist and host of The Atheist Voice on YouTube sat down with me over Skype for a friendly chat about his upbringing in Jainism, transition to atheism, and his current work as a secular activist dealing with religious extremism, Islam, & the current culture divide over feminism and political correctness.

Because the interview was rather long, I’m not typing out the entire transcript, but you can watch the whole thing here:

  1. Unrelated, but how hard is ‘The God Delusion’? I’m trying to get into atheism but I’m pretty much only good at philosophy, so would this be easy enough for layman. Thanks. 🙂

      It’s not a hard read at all. Something like Lawrence Krauss’ book A Universe from Nothing is a bit harder to read without any education in physics, but The God Delusion and God is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens are both fairly easy to understand and take in.
