|3. You are to debate atheist Richard Dawkins on the relation between faith and science. Dawkins claims that science and reason render religious faith obsolete. Outline your opening statement in the debate. What view of the relation between science and faith would you take? How would your own Christian faith make a difference to the debate (as opposed to arguing for generic religious belief or for an alternative faith such as Islam)? [10 points]|
Can't you just see it? The cameras zooming in on Dawkins' perspiring anguished face as his Christian opponent nails him with devastating question after question? The pathetic whining response as he tries to wriggle out from under the crushing weight of irrefutable argument? The stony silence of the audience who will have none of his evasive self-serving deceptions? The humble acceptance by the apologist of the community's accolades for his brilliant demolition of error and affirmation of What Is Right?
That isn't an exam question: it's Bill's fap fantasy.
Dembski's wet dream: debating Dawkins
ETA he really beleaves he won the debate vs. Hitchens the one that has been characterized as Battle of the Titans (well, one titan and a schlemiel).
