David Fitzgerald has been called "one of the busiest atheist activists in the Bay Area. In addition, he is a writer and historical researcher who has been actively investigating the Historical Jesus question for over sixteen years. He has a degree in history and was an associate member of CSER (the former Committee for the Scientific Examination of Religion).
His 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 second in his new series, The Complete Heretic's Guide to Western Religion. (Secretly, he is also a fiction writer under the name Kilt Kilpatrick).
He lectures around the country at universities, churches and national secular events - he is always a crowd favorite at events like Apostacon and Skepticon. He also speaks to religious groups such as Stands to Reason. 
David lives in San Francisco with his wife: writer, producer and movie actress Dana Fredsti. They have a new science-fiction trilogy coming out from Titan books later this year.

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 asks for a $250 honorarium from any group hosting him, but is flexible.
