This lecture describes a "tool kit" for examining miracle claims in history. It summarizes how to analyze and weigh historical claims, with entertaining examples and a slide show, concluding that, so far, there is not enough historical evidence to beleive any miracles have happened, not even that Jesus rose from the grave. Following the lecture, there will be an informal student discussion.
The lecture will be presented by Richard Carrier. Richard received his B.A. from UC Berkeley in History and Classical Civilizations and M.A/M.Phil in Ancient History from Columbia University. He is the author of "Sense and Goodness without God: A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism" and a contributing author to "The Empty Tomb: Jesus Beyond the Grave".
The lecture is hosted by Rational Thought.
