A Short List of Topics David is Eager and Qualified to Talk About:
Prepared Presentations Include:
- “Sexy Violence! Violent Sex! The Weird-ass Morality of the Bible” - IS every sperm sacred? Was Paul gay? Where’s MY concubines? Asks these and other important biblical morality questions ( note: As you can guess, this talk gets a little racy & contains strong language)
- “Ten Beautiful Lies about Jesus” Argues why the “Real Jesus” of secular historians is just as mythical as the “Jesus of Faith.” Popular talk.
- "The Ten Thousand Christs and the Evaporating Jesus" - Lays out the Jesus Myth theory (that Jesus of Nazareth wasn't a historical figure at all) - more fun than it sounds!
- "The Complete Heretic's Guide to Western Religion: Mormonism" – Everything the LDS church would rather you didn’t know about Mormon origins and beliefs
- "The Complete Heretic's Guide to Western Religion: Christmas" – Have we forgotten the real spirit of Christmas? Or have the Christians?
- David says “I can also put together presentations on a variety of other topics (given enough advance warning). I also enjoy doing debates and/or dialogues with believers, workshops, and talking about better ways to promote atheism without being a dick about it.”
David charges a $250 honorarium from any group hosting him, but is flexible.
