I didn't manage to persuade Bob and I probably didn't convince his listeners either. But I did put the case that Christians, even those who believe the Bible to be inerrant, do not have to be creationists. And I got the chance to explain this to thousands of religious conservatives who would dismiss anything that came from an atheist out of hand. So, if the first step in winning an argument is getting a hearing, then my venture onto Talk Radio must be counted as a success.

The first part of the discussion between Dr. Hannam and Bob Enyart can be found here.

James Hannam earned degrees in physics and history from Oxford and London universities, and his doctorate in the history of science from Cambridge University. Learn more about Dr. Hannam and his work at http://www.bedejournal.blogspot.com/, or purchase his book, God's Philosophers: How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science, which the Sunday Times has called "a spirited jaunt through centuries of scientific development" that "captures the wonder of the medieval world: its inspirational curiosity and its engaging strangeness."
