The Mythinformation Conference brings a day full of education to the secular community - with speakers from all across the freethought spectrum. Mythicist Milwaukee focuses on educating the freethought/skeptic/atheist community about the mythological origins of religion, and our conference does that and more.
This year's conference features one of the secular world's most anticipated debates between Dr. Robert Price and Bart D. Ehrman arguing the existence of a historical Jesus Christ.
These two New Testament scholars are coming together to discuss the hotly debated topic of the existence of a historical Jesus Christ. Dr. Robert Price
is a former Baptist minister who holds PhDs in systematic theology and the New Testament.
Dr. Price is professor of biblical criticism at the Center for Inquiry Institute, and will assert the Jesus Myth Theory viewpoint - wherein there are flaws with the evidence for a historical Jesus - and will make the case that He is no more than a mythological figure.
Bart D. Ehrman is the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he has taught since 1988. Professor Ehrman has published extensively in the fields of New Testament and Early Christianity, and will support the stance that there is strong evidence for the existence for a historical Jesus.
