Atheists & Agnostics of Rossmoor May 20th Meeting

Our meeting will feature Dr. Richard Carrier speaking on “
Why Everyone Says Medieval Christians Invented Science.” Dr. Carrier summarizes and expands on one of his chapters in the new, controversial book,
The Christian Delusion (edited by John Loftus), which addresses the new argument going around that we have Christianity to thank for modern science. We all know it’s closer to the other way around. So how on earth do they think the opposite? What are their arguments? What is their evidence? How can they be so mistaken? Dr. Carrier tells all. Dr. Carrier will have for sale several of his books, including the new one. Dr. Carrier holds a Ph.D. from Columbia University in ancient history, specializing in the intellectual history of Greece and Rome, particularly ancient philosophy, religion, and science, with emphasis on the origins of Christianity and the use and progress of science under the Roman empire.
Important! Rossmoor is a gated community. Enter in a visitor lane and tell them that you are attending the Atheists & Agnostics meeting. This is never a problem.

    Presentation was basically a power point, with limited visuals, and thus, was not particularly engaging. I would rate this a 2.5, between neutral and bad.
