FYI: Christian/atheist debate this Sunday[masked]

From: Bernie D.

FYI- the following was sent to the Westside group.  This is also forwarded to the Vancouver group as there may be interest in this final event of the season.



Hi all-

As a reminder, here's the info for the debate this Sunday[masked] at Portland State University:

I'm really looking forward to debating with George Fox University philosophy professor Phil Smith.  He's not a young or old earther like most others who have debated me or other atheists locally.  In fact, this is the first time we've ever had a local Christian apologist who doesn't deny biological evolution and is willing to totally accept it, as well as all other modern science.

So does accepting evolution solve all the problems that traditional Christian theology had with evolution? Or does it create new, perplexing issues, or magnify other older issues?

This is also the first time, I believe, having a philosophy professor engaged in these debates (in the past we've had Pastors, an author, and young earth activists).

There will be ample time for audience Q&A, so I hope you can come and bring your best questions.  Please invite a friend.  (It is Mother's day too, so don't forget to give her a present... and bring her along!)  This is also the last event for the school year, so if you've never yet attended one of these debate/discussions, now is your chance.  And since it is Sunday, traffic will be light so you can easily travel from the nether parts of Portland/Vancouver.
