Dr. Peter Boghossian, a professor and philosopher associated with Portland State University, has launched an innovative smartphone app that is designed to make it easier than ever for passionate atheists to go ahead and engage in theological debates with believers.
The Atheos app aims to reconfigure theological debates around a framework of mutual respect, something which is often missing from such conversations. The app allows users to explore and question beliefs in a mature and safe environment that is designed to foster knowledge rather than name-calling. The app even helps ardent atheists make their arguments by supplying them with information and resources to call upon.
Theological debates are likely to rage as long as there are people on this earth, but the Atheos app aims to add some maturity and conviviality to these important discussions.
