Lecture 39 Heresy: An Atheist Perspective This lecture is devoted to the concept of heresy. In an earlier lecture I visited the topic of blasphemy, which is a different conception. There is a definite distinction between blasphemy and heresy. (Please see AtheistScholar.org for the written lecture on blasphemy and the link to the YouTube lecture.) I have also spoken at some length about heresy in my lecture on the Inquisition (Please see AtheistScholar.org for the written lecture on The Inquisition and the link to the YouTube lecture.) But it is important to revisit heresy, to discuss it as a unique concept, and one that is not only constructed by orthodoxy but constructs orthodoxy as well.
