Update: Richard Dawkins and Michael Sherman in Mexico City Next Week

2 Nov

Here’s a link to the schedule of events in Mexico City for the Origins of the Future Rebirth 2010 Festival.  There is a lineup of some very impressive participants.  Richard Dawkins will follow Steve Pinker on November 12, 2010 during a timeframe beginning at 12:30 p.m.
 
On the Nov. 13 at 10:30 there will be a debate covering the question, “Does the Universe have a purpose?”
The teams will include Matt Ridley, Michael Sherman, and Michio Kaku opposing Rabbi David Wolpe, William Lane Craig, and Douglas Geivett. 
 Christian apologetics think William Lane Craig is a big deal.  I remain unimpressed.  However this promises to be a wonderful debate whichever side you are on.

    Hey I strolled on this blog after searching Michael Sherman vs William Craig to see if this “fantasy” debate existed.

    Did this get recorded???
