    First RPD Experience... Three things -

    WAY too much time laying ID off as a religious thing. One person could have made the point... then moved on. We spent/wasted lots of time on this. Thought the debaters avoided the real meat of the topic - speciation. The talk about taxonomy is fine... but the true heart of the matter is: How did life begin? Most recent natural speciation events? Bob should have had more detail and not merely refer to published peer reviewed articles.

    Love ya Ben but the whole Q&A was out of hand. If you pass out cards... use the cards... if you field questions from the audience... do that. Pick one, stick with it.

    Yeah, Bob Heck is definitely skeptical of evolution. That doesn't make sense to many people's sensibilities, but that is his view.

    A secular conservative arguing AGAINST intelligent design? Not so! I'm not sure how that will work, though. We'll have to see.

    I'm confused. This looks like two people who would both be arguing AGAINST intelligent design?
