This is my second appearance on Unbelievable?, a Premier Christian Radio show hosted by Justin Brierley. Here I debate Ken Samples of apologetics organization Reasons to Believe. The general consensus of the Unbelievable? community seems to be that this was a solid victory for me. I was particularly surprised that Ken was seemingly unable to formulate the ‘Argument from Reason’ in a powerful way – he simply repeatedly asserted that there is some problem with mind emerging from matter, without explaining why this would cause us a problem.
