Sac State professor to speak at City College
Originally published Nov. 27, 2012 by SacCityExpress.com
Ever wondered what witches can reveal about the resurrection of Jesus Christ?
Sacramento State philosophy professor Matt McCormick will speak on that very subject Nov. 29 at City College in a presentation that will address the idea of Jesus coming back from the dead and how it relates to belief in witches and the Salem Witch Trials.
The event is presented by the Sac City Freethinkers Club. The event co-host is the Secular Student Alliance, a group who aims to “to organize, unite, educate, and serve students and student communities that promote the ideals of scientific and critical inquiry, democracy, secularism, and human-based ethics,” according to secularstudents.org.
McCormick is the author of a recently published book called “Atheism and the Case against Christ”, in which he “undermines Christianity and theism at their foundations; provides a powerful model for better critical reasoning; and builds a compelling case for atheism,” according to a flier for the event.
This free presentation will take place in Rodda Hall North, Room 258, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and is open to everyone.
McCormick will also hold a question and answer session following his speech.
