Public speaking[edit]

Fitzgerald lectures across the nation at secular events and universities. He is best known for his multimedia presentations "The Ten Thousand Christs and the Evaporating Jesus" as well as "The Complete Heretic's Guide to Western Religion". In November 2010 he presented his research at Skepticon 3 in a presentation titled Examining the Existence of a Historical Jesus.[4]


In 2010 Fitzgerald self-published his book Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed At All.[5] Nailed details what he presents as ten myths surrounding Jesus and aims to show evidence that "Jesus may have been a figure of legend". In 2013 he released "The Mormons" (full title "The Complete Heretic's Guide to Western Religion Book One: The Mormons") ISBN 978-1482773347, Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (May 15, 2013)
