Hector Avalos is Professor of Religious Studies at Iowa State University. He will discuss how archaeology has been used to refute the claim that the Bible is historically accurate in depicting creation, the Exodus, the reign of Solomon and many other events.

A former fundamentalist preacher and faith healer, Avalos is now one of the few openly atheist biblical scholars in academia. He is the author or editor of ten books, including his most recent, The Bad Jesus: The Ethics of New Testament Ethics.
