Throughout history, freethinkers have outraged the religious with their wacky ideas about the virtues of free speech, reason, and, of course, eating babies. Now, God is dying—and it's time to dispose of his remains. From the pits of Hell, Satan sends two puppets of the imperialist West and the Zionist Jews against God, Islam, and tiny kittens to bring you their propaganda and conspire for a new world order. This is Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment—with Ali Rizvi and Armin Navabi.

Aug 31, 2018

A key element of the Enlightenment was the emergence of Biblical criticism as an academic discipline. This practice, which arose out of the German Enlightenment in the 1700s, was centered around applying a non-sectarian, reason-based approach to studying scripture in order to avoid dogma and bias. Biblical criticism was instrumental in the neutering of pre-Enlightenment Christianity, challenging and normalizing the notion of Biblical inerrancy and helping shatter taboos like blasphemy. In Islam, the Quran is still seen by the vast majority of Muslims as the inerrant, literal word of Allah, the Creator of the Universe—and criticizing it or even questioning it carries dire penalties across the Muslim world. Fortunately, a new generation of secular Quranic skeptics from the Muslim world, like Abdullah Gondal, are challenging the Quran—its history, its authenticity, its claims of preservation, and its claims of truth and divinity. Join us as we dive into everything you wanted to know about the Quran with this brilliant young talent—you'll learn a lot.
