The goal is to help people become more thoughtful and more reflective about their faith-based beliefs.
Can you support your positions about God, religion or the supernatural?
Atheos is an app being developed by Dr. Peter Boghossian and his team that helps people have non-confrontational discussions about gods, religion, faith, and superstition. It will show you how to gently explore a person's strongest beliefs.
Atheos will provide you with the skills you’ll need to spot flaws in weak statements and use reason to politely help people understand why they may not be correct.
It's the perfect app for atheists, agnostics, humanists, skeptics, freethinkers, and even believers who want to find out how best to engage in religious discussions.

Ratings and Reviews
I’d rather see an upfront cost
I have this on my list of wanted apps so was puzzled when I noticed I’d downloaded a free app. Ah- in app purchase. Expensive in app purchase. I never spend $5 on an app unless it’s very special like the New York Times- no, that’s not even how I pay for my media subscriptions because I want flexibility. I haven’t paid so much for photo editing, cameras, cookbooks...there may be something I paid quite a bit for after using a lite version for awhile but I don’t know. The app sales model= make a good product & sell a lot for very little.
Seth, “The Thinking Athiest” reviewed this- considering his background, job and location (Oklahoma) he’s in a position to need it. I live in Boulder*, for Pete’s sake- my appreciation is likely different; more of an exercise. Still, doncha’ think we all can use exposure to logical thought? Isn’t telling us our cost more logical & considerate?
Second reason to price your app at it’s real price: you can put it on sale. It’s stunning a thing like a sale on an app matters. Sure, list the app for $4.99, then drop it to $1.99 or less for awhile and the reward centers of our brains light up... Guess what happens to our feelings about the app and developer? We associate the reward with that when we open the app for a long time, we use it more, recommend it, look for others like it... the gain is worth so much more than any “loss” in sales revenue.
*I’m unlikely to meet the run-of-the-mill religious and evangelical political party here, we have the delusional anti-vaxxers, homeopathy & cleanse adherents, crystal lovers, etc. I don’t know if this prepares me for them too.
A quick reply.
I have just started to use the app and it seems pretty nice so far. Possibly basic, but you have to start somewhere. To rebuttal “Another village idiot”, science takes absolutely no faith. In fact it rejects faith in favor of demonstrable evidence. Please understand what you’re talking about before going out of your way to underrate an app you don’t understand.
Free part was full of atheist jargon with no definitions.
1) Based upon what was presented as free, the rest won't be worth the money.
2) This is presented as an argument against faith based belief systems, but they seem to ignore that science requires faith that what we are taught in schools is true. It is unfortunate that like most things aligned with the democrats, they cherry pick their information, a problem they highlight in the free version.
3) I was excited that this might be a useful tool for argument against faith, but found it to be closed minded and hypocritical, just like the indoctrination from the church my father forced us to attend when I was a youth.
Was the little bit that was free valuable? Only to show I already knew more than enough to see through the religious beliefs of the authors.
