Edit: The debate has now happened. Here it is:
Original post from before the debate:
Friday, May 31, from 8:30pm-9:30pm EDT, you can tune into my YouTube page and see Justin Vacula and I hash out our conflicting views about controversies in the atheist/secularist movement related to feminism. If you don’t see the video right away, just hit refresh periodically and it should show up.
I will post the video here. Feel free to write me with your confidential suggestions for what you would like me to raise in the discussion. You may also write in with any questions you would not mind being read verbatim to Justin. Specify what is meant for my eyes only or what you wouldn’t mind being read on air. I don’t know if we will actually get to such questions. We have a ton to cover as things are. But it can’t hurt to see them.I will post the video in a new post after the Google Hangout ends on Friday night. I won’t be posting any original writing this weekend. I am working on ideas so densely interwoven that I would like to write freely and then figure out how to present the material in manageable posts. Just putting up short posts is proving impossible. I need to write it all out and figure out what the coherent short posts to put up are. Hopefully soon though I will be able to publish a nice series of reflections with some potential to help constructively advance discussions about controversial issues in the community.
