A challenge to a debate has been made an accepted.
My opponent in this debate will be JoeG.
The proposition is Intelligent Design is Anti-evolution
I will be speaking in support and JoeG will be speaking against.
There will be an opening statement of about 4500 words max. A single rebuttal round of less than 2000 words and a closing statement of about 500 words. All statements will be co-located on my and JoeGs blogs.
There will be approximately one week between posts (Opening statements are due next Friday April 29th).
This post will be updated with links to the relevant entries on both blogs as they become available.
UPDATE: Opening Statements are posted. Rebuttal is scheduled for May 6th. I believe that someone will be setting up a peanut gallery at After the Bar Closes. Comments on Opening Statements are welcome, but the debate is (at present) between Joe and I. Thanks in advance for your restraint.
UPDATE (5/3/11): Joe has requested to speed up the debate some. I don’t have a problem with that, so my rebuttal is up.
UPDATE (5/4/11): Looks like Joe’s posts are up and now everything can be added for the rebuttal stage. I haven’t discuss the deadline for the closing argument with Joe, but it’ll have to be either Friday or next week sometime. I’ll be travelling over the weekend. Arguments have been posted all that’s left is a 500 word closing argument, so feel free to comment on the debate posts.
UPDATE (5/5/11): I’ll be out travelling for a while and I’m kind of bored with this anyway. My closing statement is published. I’ll get Joe’s and the other links sometime next week.
