Forum: Ten Beautiful Lies about Jesus - David Fitzgerald

Humanist Community in Silicon Valley holds weekly forums with speakers discussing topics of interest to humanists.

Sunday Forum: Ten Beautiful Lies about Jesus - David Fitzgerald

Why would anyone think Jesus never existed?

Isn’t it perfectly reasonable to accept that he was a real first century figure?

As it turns out, no. David Fitzgerald’s award-winning book Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed At All sheds light on ten beloved Christian myths, and with evidence gathered from historians all across the theological spectrum, shows how they point to a Jesus Christ created solely through allegorical alchemy of hope and imagination; a messiah transformed from a purely literary, theological construct into the familiar figure of Jesus – in short, a purely mythic Christ

Join us as we hear Dave lay out the ten biggest “facts” Christians get wrong about Jesus in his talk “Ten Beautiful Lies about Jesus.”
