Matt Dillahunty (born March 31, 1969) is a public speaker, internet personality and was the president of the Atheist Community of Austin until May, 2013. He hosts the live internet radio show Non-Prophets Radio and the Austin-based public-access television show The Atheist Experience. He is also the founder and contributor of the counter-apologetics encyclopedia Iron Chariots and its subsidiary sites.
He is regularly engaged in formal debates and travels the United States speaking to local secular organizations and university groups as part of the Secular Student Alliance's Speakers Bureau.
Matt was raised as a Baptist Christian and sought to become a Baptist minister. His religious studies, instead of bolstering his faith as he intended, led to a rejection of Christianity and, eventually, all religions. In 2011, Matt married The Atheist Experience colleague Beth Presswood.
