Dan Barker and the Jesus Myth

“The Jesus Myth” event at UCLA was a great sucess. Matt, Mimi, Joseph, and I walked in late, but i don’t think we missed to much. At any rate, from what was said it seems conclusive that the Jesus of the gospels is the stuff of legend. Additonaly, if a mortal man named Jesus ever lived, the evidence for his existence seems sketchy at best. In my opinion, the question and answer period was the most interesting, as Dan offered hilarious insight into what it was like to change from devout pentacostal minister to staunch atheist. Don’t take my word for it, though. The entire event was videotaped and will be available to all within a week. After the event, the Bruin Alliance of Skeptics and Secularists along with the Long Beach Secular Students took Dan to dinner at California Pizza Kitchen, which consisted of hours of intellectually stimulating conversation for all. It really was an excellent time, and I encourage everyone to participate in these sorts of events in the future. Speaking of events, Dan is from Long Beach and said he would be happy to speak at CSULB sometime in the fall of next year.

While you are wating for the video of the event, here is Dan’s profile on the Freedom From Religion website.

    Thanks for coming Sean. Unfotunately, the video won’t be available within the week. I’m trying to figure out how to get a Hi-8 vid onto a computer and then I still have to edit the video.
    Toodles.
