“The One Biggest Secret of All World Religions” Online presentation via Zoom – this Sunday, February 13, 10 am Pacific/1 pm Eastern Every religion around the world and throughout human history appears to be pretty much completely untrue—and yet, there is still a shocking commonality all of them share.

AFS welcomes David Fitzgerald, author of Nailed and The Complete Heretic’s Guide to Western Religion series—a writer known simultaneously for his light, witty touch and his careful, thoughtful scholarship. Host Ed Buckner says “Fitzgerald is a delight as a writer or speaker—his words pull you along, inform you meticulously well, and make you laugh aloud.”

Feel free to ask me or Atlanta Freethought Society for the Zoom link to the show!

Producers and cohosts – Scott Heftler Ph.D. and
planksip founder Daniel Sanderson

NOTE: These events are pre-recorded but we will be able to take questions live and possibly talk about your question in the next recording.

David Fitzgerald has been called “one of the busiest atheist activists in the Bay Area.” In addition to serving on the board of San Francisco Atheists and CFI-SF, he has also been the Director/Co-Founder of both the world’s first Atheist Film Festival and Evolutionpalooza!, San Francisco’s oldest annual Darwin Day celebration.

In addition, he is an author and historical researcher who has been actively investigating the Historical Jesus question for over eighteen years. He has a degree in history and was an associate member of CSER (the former Committee for the Scientific Examination of Religion). He lectures around the world at universities, churches, and national secular events, and also speaks to religious groups.

David lives in San Francisco with his wife—writer, producer, and movie actress Dana Fredsti. They have a new science-fiction trilogy, TIME SHARDS, from Titan books. David’s latest book is Jesus: Mything in Action (the follow-up book to his NAILED: Ten Christian Myths that Show Jesus Never Existed at All) and the newest addition to his new series, The Complete Heretic’s Guide to Western Religion.

A Short List of Topics David is eager and qualified to Talk About: “Jesus: Mything in Action” Argues why the “Real Jesus” of secular historians is just as mythical as the “Jesus of Faith” – and why the argument matters to atheists, no matter if Jesus really existed or not.

“Sexy Violence! Violent Sex! The Weird-ass Morality of the Bible” IS every sperm sacred? Was Paul gay? Where’s MY concubines? The latest presentation from David Fitzgerald asks these and other important biblical morality questions. A hard-hitting and hilarious investigative report on how the Bible is even more twisted than you already thought (note: As you may guess, this talk gets a little racy & contains strong language) “The Complete Heretic’s Guide to Western Religion: Mormonism” – Drags all the skeletons out from Joseph Smiths’ closet.

David can also put together humorous and informative presentations on most of the other topics in the CFI Bureau Topics and Sub-topics lists.
Watch as David gives his presentation titled “The Ten Thousand Christs and the Evaporating Jesus”
