Philip Davies is Emeritus Professor in the Department for biblical studies at The University of Sheffield, he is an expert on the Dead Sea scrolls, and has published four books on the topic, he also specialises in Archaeology and the Old testament, and will bring his wealth of knowledge in this area to discuss how much we can say that the Bible is, or isn't history.
There will be a time for question and answers after the main talk, and of course plenty of time to enjoy a beer and meet each other in the friendly surroundings of The Bootlegger Pub, opposite the station in Wycombe.
Skeptics in the Pub is a place for inquisitive people of all ages to meet and converse in the High Wycombe area.
Skeptics are people who yearn to discover the truth behind extraordinary claims that people or groups may make, this can be in areas of alternative therapies, the paranormal, religion and faith, the afterlife or many other areas of life.
We make no claims to balance, and actively promote science, freedom of expression and secular humanism. This means we often end up talking about superstition, religious fundamentalism, censorship and conspiracy theory.
You are welcome to come along and just sit and listen to others, or if you are braver get stuck right in!

Most of us have a fondness for good quality beer, so our current home is Wycombe’s only specialty ale house & bottle bar, It is also a Bring Your Own Food Pub, and they have free WiFi.
