A skeptic’s ears could perk up when they hear that an ex-satanist has never talked to an atheist. The last time Dr. Bill Schnoebelen was on Miracles & Atheists we talked about Halloween, and Dr. Bill made the statement that he’s never really talked to an atheist before. We thought it was an interesting statement considering the vast number of groups he’s been involved with through the years, so it was a good idea to invite him back on the podcast and connect him with an atheist. So here we are, with atheist Eric D. Murphy.



Dr. Bill is a prayer warrior, counselor, Scriptural scholar and author.  He founded With One Accord Ministries in 1992 and has traveled the world teaching, preaching and sharing the Gospel. Before his salvation through Jesus Christ, Bill spent sixteen years as a teacher and high priest of witchcraft, spiritism and ceremonial magick. A former Satanist & Druidic high priest, the Almighty has used Dr. Bill’s past to teach Spiritual Warfare and Minister to the Lost.  He is an authority on alternative religions, cults and the occult.  

Representing the atheist position is Eric D. Murphy, founder of The Atheist Podcast and Skeptic Generation.  Eric has spent six years as a community builder, speaker, and activist in the atheist community, and he has also been a repeat guest on Miracles & Atheists. Most recently, Eric started Skeptic Generation, a brand new call-in show which he co-hosts with his fiance, Vi La Bianca (who incidentally will join Marcus and I tomorrow to talk about Sam Harris’ book, Letter to a Christian Nation). The Skeptic Generation mission is to make fun, thought-provoking, and high-quality content for an ever-expanding community of diverse and compassionate atheists.
