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 Austin-based webcast and 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.
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 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.
In 2011, Matt married The Atheist Experience colleague Beth Presswood. Now divorced 2018.
