Richard Carrier – CFI UK London event 16th November

This should be a really interesting talk (organized by myself for CFI UK) from one of the world’s leading skeptics. He is the author of a controversial new book on the quest for the historical Jesus. Hope to see some of you there…

Richard Carrier: Bayes’ Theorem and Historical Reasoning: How Historical Methods Can Be Improved and Why They Need to Be

16th November 2012    
Stamford Street Lecture Theatre
7.30pm – 9pm (7.00pm registration)      

Drawing from his new book Proving History: Bayes’s Theorem and the Quest for the Historical Jesus (Prometheus, 2012), Dr. Carrier will explain what Bayes’ Theorem is (in terms anyone can understand), how it underlies all valid historical methods even when we don’t realize it, and why knowing this can improve historical reasoning and argument in all fields of history.
