Bournemouth Skeptics in the Pub invite a guest speaker every month to come and discuss something interesting with us. The talks can be about science, reason and critical thinking, conspiracy, the paranormal, cults and so on. Listen, have a drink and ask some questions of our speaker.

We meet on the second Wednesday of each month at The Brunswick Pub, 199 Malmesbury Park Rd, Charminster, BH8 8PX (5 minutes by car or 15 minutes on foot from Bournemouth Station).

What's the talk about?

The usual response to scepticism about whether Jesus actually existed is condescension and dismissal. It’s claimed that ‘no reputable scholars’ doubt his existence and that Jesus scepticism is a fringe topic for nutters.

All of this changed in 2014 when historian Richard Carrier published ‘On the Historicity of Jesus: Why We Might Have Reason for Doubt’ – a serious work of scholarship which concludes that, whilst the historical existence of Jesus remains a possibility, the probability of this being true is vanishingly small.

David will take us through the main arguments and let you make your own mind up.
