grusThis week on The Marketplace of Ideas, Colin Marshall talks to Joel Grus, who, according to his own web site, is an “author,” “speaker,” “provocateur” and “jerk.” Grus is the author of Your Religion is False, an attempt to disprove all religions major, non-major and otherwise with both the vast intellectual resources of Wikipedia and numerous references to forgotten music videos, low-budget cartoons and mid-80s comedies now screened only on TBS. The religions disproved by Grus include Zoroastrianism, Chondogyo, Singularitarianism, Scientology, Objectivism, and agnosticism.

The Marketplace of Ideas airs every Thursday at noon.
