Uncommon Descent Serving The Intelligent Design Community

Meyer vs. Krauss in Toronto this Saturday


Pro ID Steve Meyer. No ID Larry Krauss.

As noted here, and live streamed:

Note: The University of Toronto has been fairly open-minded in hosting these types of events.

One remembers – with some distress – a disgraceful scene at U Texas Amarillo (2013) where the admin totally caved to some nondescript Darwin troll displaying his asshat.

But, come to think of it, Toronto is a world class city (Economist ranks it best place to live) and it is a long way from Amarillo. Maybe it should stay a long way away.

Presser below:

Meyer had better watch himself here. Lamoureux, like most Theistic Evolutionists, would side with the devil rather than respectfully engage with an advocate of ID. tbotss

What time is the debate? StephenB
They only call it a world class city because it fulfills left wing agendas. Its great to have the thing. A theo phy taking on a biology subject does mean specialty is not the point. However Meyer should be able to make a great case despite that. Robert Byers
