Matt Dillahunty Bio: Matt is a well known public speaker and popular internet personality, and was the president of the Atheist Community of Austin until May 2013. He hosts the Austin-based cable-access television show The Atheist Experience, and formerly hosted the live internet radio show Non-Prophets Radio. He is also the founder and contributor of the counter-apologetics encyclopedia Iron Chariots and its subsidiary sites. Matt maintains a packed schedule engaging in formal debates across the United States.

Raised as a Baptist Christian, Matt grew up intending to become a Baptist minister. His religious studies, instead of bolstering his faith as he intended, led him to no longer believe in Christianity and eventually all religions. Matt spent many years in the US Navy, before leaving to work in the field of computer software design.

Sye Ten Bruggencate Bio: My name is Sye Ten Bruggencate. I live in Ontario, Canada. I was born in Toronto, grew up in a loving Christian home, and am the 5th eldest of 7 children. My parents immigrated from Holland, (My Dad was originally from a Dutch colony in Indonesia) and I can speak Dutch fluently. I am a member of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Canada. I have had no formal training in apologetics (defense of the faith), but have studied presuppositional apologetics from many resources, most notably, lectures by the late Greg Bahnsen. By God's grace alone, I am a Christian.
