How did the debate go? Teddy
Here's where I am confused. Has there ever been an adequate response from the *cough* naturalistic community to the issues raised by Dembski (TDR, NFL, S:TPTSI, etc) or the issues raised in this paper that don't come down to "I don't like your theology"? jaredl
Do you know if it's going to be recorded and where w'll be able to hear it if it does get recorded? sam72
