“Sexy Violence! Violent Sex! The Weird-ass Morality of the Bible” - IS every sperm sacred? Was Paul gay? Where’s MY concubines? David Fitzgerald will be discussing these and other important biblical morality questions (Please be advised that this talk gets a little racy & contains strong language).
David Fitzgerald has been called both “The Ferris Bueller of San Francisco” and “one of the busiest Atheist activists in the Bay Area.” A former Southern Baptist, he had a secular epiphany in his 20's and is now Action Coordinator for San Francisco Atheists and on the national speaker's bureaus of the Secular Student Alliance and Center for Inquiry. He is also co-founder/director of the world’s first Atheist Film Festival and San Francisco's annual Darwin Day celebration, "Evolutionpalooza!" and (with Greta Christina) the Godless Perverts Story Hour.
He also serves on the board of the Center for Inquiry-San Francisco, and works with the Secular Student Alliance, Stanford Humanist Chaplaincy, Camp Quest West, the National Center for Science Education and other organizations. He has been a repeat speaker at the national conventions of American Atheists, American Humanist Association, Secular Student Alliance, and is a crowd favorite at Skepticon. Besides all that, he is a historical researcher. His 2010 book Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed At All critically examines the historical evidence of Christ, and was voted one of the top five Best Agnostic/Atheist Book of the Year from About Reader’s Choice awards. His latest books are The Complete Heretic’s Guide to Western Religion: The Mormons. His next book, Jesus: Mything in Action, will take on the secular arguments for the Historic Jesus.
