There were a couple of striking things about the debate, where Meyer was overcome early on by a migraine brought on by the bright lights.
“Dialogue,” in practice, can quickly devolve into a monologue where religion is supposed to sit down and shut up the moment there is a point of difference.
What was missing until now is a weighing of the philosophical side of Dr. Meyer’s argument, on which much depends.
Pat Flynn and Stephen Meyer also discuss the beginning of the universe and the fine-tuning of the cosmos for life.
What a peculiar thing to do. You invite someone for a “dialogue” and then, only once he’s left the building, do you start debating with him.
