On Saturday March 29th (2014) at 4:30pm I will be giving an impromptu talk about my new book Hitler Homer Bible Christ: The Historical Papers of Richard Carrier 1995-2013 and taking questions from the audience. Officially we’ll go until 6pm, although Jen and I will be having dinner at a nearby pub afterward and then grabbing a few drinks at the bar before heading home. Sponsored by the San Francisco Atheists. Details for the event are here. Description:
Dr. Carrier will talk about the contents of his new anthology, Hitler Homer Bible Christ: The Historical Papers of Richard Carrier 1995-2013, which contains essays and academic papers on subjects as diverse as what purpose historians serve in society and how history can actually be an experimental science, to exposing bogus Hitler quotes and demonstrating some early non-Christian references to Jesus are fake. He will also talk about how he was independently funded to research and write about how the Gospels contradict each other on dating the year of Christ’s birth, and how we know the ending of Mark is a forgery, and other topics, including future research now going on in Sweden due to Carrier’s journal publication of his results on those bogus Hitler quotes. He will be selling and signing books and taking questions from the audience.
The talk will be given in the Niantic East meeting room of the Club Quarters Hotel (lower level, take the elevator down to LL), on 424 Clay Street (San Francisco, CA), near Battery (adjacent to the Elephant & Castle Pub, and near the Embarcadero Muni and BART station). You are welcome to bring drinks purchased at the bar. Open to the public. Cash donations will help them cover the room rental. Several of us will likely end up at the Elephant & Castle Pub after (that’s where Jen and I will chow down and then hang out for a bit).
