Atheist vs. Christian debate - Morality: Natural or Supernatural?
The video of my debate with my friend Michael Sizer on morality is now available.
This debate took place in March 2010 AD at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Canada.
At some point I may post segments and make a few comments.
For example, at one point, when it came to the question about harm causing in the Bible I misspoke;
I wanted to distinguish between me taking it upon myself to taken an innocent life--on the one hand--and a governing body prescribing capital punishment on a guilty person--on the other.
Yet, I accidentally said, "innocent" for both.
I also made a statement about the difference between us, humans, and other animals when I meant to note a difference between us, humans and animals (not other as if we are animals).
As for my approach well, I am not a Christian apologist so that I can defend some generic “g,” “o,” “d.”
Here are a couple of the fliers for the event. One states that I was "supported by Creation Ministries" which I was not; they seemed to assume that I was being supported by Creation Ministries International because it was what I wrote about morality for their main atheism essay that brought Michael and I together—also see my responses to comments that it has received.
The following clip is from part 8, t=6:55 and I believe that it cuts to the core of any and every atheist versus Christian debate on the issue of morality: his answer is nonsensical to me and my answer is inconceivable to him. I give Michael credit for his honestly as when your debate opponent applauds for you, it really says something (although, my statement is in no way original to me but is right from the New Testament).
