Holy Lincoln Memorial, Batman! For those who missed the Batman & Jesus teaser trailer on the big screen at the Reason Rally 2016 - watch it now!

The Batman & Jesus teaser trailer was filmed in April at Calvary Church in downtown Milwaukee.

Check out a behind-the-scenes clip montage from the day.

Director, Jozef K. Richards screened the trailer for the crowd gathered in front of the Lincoln Memorial. One of the few presentations on the big screen, some attendees were confused to begin with while others wondered if it was all a joke.

The Jesus Myth Theory w/ Richard Carrier and Raphael Lataster

Richard Carrier and Raphael Lataster on the Mythicist Milwaukee Show

 

Richard Carrier and Raphael Lataster join us for a discussion that covers the arguments for and against the mythicist position. We touch on many topics that relate to why we believe Jesus is purely a myth and was not an historical figure. If you are interested in the information that surrounds the Jesus myth theory, make sure to listen to this interview!

Richard Carrier has a Ph.D. in the history of philosophy from Columbia University, and is a published philosopher and historian, specializing in contemporary philosophy of naturalism, and in Greco-Roman philosophy, science, and religion, and the origins of Christianity. He blogs regularly, lectures for community groups worldwide, and teaches courses online. He is the author of many books including “Sense and Goodness without God”, “On the Historicity of Jesus: Why we Might Have Reason for Doubt”, and “Proving History: Bayes's Theorem and the Quest for the Historical Jesus”.  His work has been published frequently in academic journals.

Raphael Lataster is a professional PhD researcher at the University of Sydney.  He lectures on topics related to religion at various institutions. Raphael’s Master’s thesis focused on Jesus historicity theories, concluding that historical and Bayesian reasoning justifies a skeptical attitude towards the ‘Historical Jesus’. For his doctoral work, Raphael is analyzing the major philosophical arguments for God’s existence and attempts to demonstrate the logical improbability of theism.

They have recently worked together on an exciting new book entitled “Jesus Did Not Exist: A Debate Among Atheists”.

The Origin of Christmas in 1 Hour w/ Kenneth Humphreys

Kenneth Humphreys joins us on the Mythicist Milwaukee Show

During this interview Kenneth takes us through the true origins of the Christian festival known as Christmas. He explains why the earliest Christians would not have celebrated the birth of Jesus and why December 25th was chosen in the 4th century to celebrate this festival.

We discuss many of the earlier dying and rising gods that were also celebrated on and around December 25th and clearly predate Jesus. We also touch on how the Christians competed against Saturnalia and what they did to infuse the traditions of this popular Roman festival into the narrative of Jesus in the New Testament. 

Kenneth Humphreys holds a Master's degree from the University of Essex in history and social sciences, a post-graduate pedagogic certificate from the University of Leicester, and a higher national certificate in business studies. He taught for many years in the UK and abroad. Religion, and in particular the claims of Christianity, have been a life-long interest.

His new Book “Jesus Never Existed: An Introduction to the Ultimate Heresy” is a scholarly yet easily digestible and entertaining approach to the Christ myth theory.  He is now fully occupied as a writer, radio broadcaster, and public speaker, and campaigns energetically against the tide of resurgent superstition and unreason.
