Greg Brahe, host of Inspiring Doubt, is going to have Richard Carrier on his show today, with the aim of telling him that he is wrong!
The show will be broadcast live on YouTube at 6pm today (Eastern Time, I believe). Here is the blurb for it:
I invited Dr Carrier to appear on Inspiring Doubt to discuss a recent article he published, “On Evaluating Arguments From Consensus” (http://freethoughtblogs.com/carrier/archives/5553). By “invite”, what I actually said to him was :
“Would you be available for an interview about this? By “interview”, I mean “friendly challenge”. I run a skeptic page and podcast and would appreciate the opportunity to discuss the importance of recognizing when one is unqualified to challenge the consensus and when one is not. I disagree with your position on this, though not with your legitimacy in challenging the consensus as an expert.
I’d love to have you convince me I am wrong so I can accept your position and not just call it my bias.”
Join us for what should be a very stimulating conversation where, hopefully, I get made to look silly!
