Atheist Debate

I don't know how much you've heard about the ABC Nightline debate that is coming up. But here's the run down, Actor Kirk Cameron and another Christian are going to debate with two Atheists about God, creation, and the rest of that. It's interesting, but I've noticed a lot about Atheism in the media the last little while. Maybe it has to do with Richard Dawkins' book the God Delusion.
Anyway I was up early this morning and I watched Richard Dawkins and George Stroumboulopoulos on the Hour. So after watching that (click here to see it) I'm really hoping that Kirk and his Christian buddy do better than what they did before (see video).

Now I am all for conversation and there can even be a place for all out debate (all though I think this sounds like ABC is going for a ratings grab). But I really would feel better about this if they had some of the right people there. I have this sinking feelings that this could be a real gong show. That banana logic is more than a little thin.

ouch, that banana isn't helping anyone. I think you might be right about the gong show. I don't think i'll even be able to watch it, i just know it's gonna hurt to see it. Let me know how it goes...

Hey Dan, wasn't as bad as it could have been... but it wasn't pretty.
