Debate down in Texas.

The weekend after Labor Day David Smalley, the host of the popular atheist podcast Dogma Debate (and all around pro at looking like he simply doesn’t give a good god damn in pictures), is going to be duking it out with Dr. Barry Creamer on two questions: “Does the god of the bible exist?” and “Should gay marriage be legal?”  Creamer is the host of Coffee with Creamer on 90.9 FM KCBI in Dallas, and serves as the Vice President of Academic Affairs & Professor of Humanities at Criswell College.

It’ll be a tough day for Creamer.  Not only is Smalley a solid debater, but the god of the bible’s existence is such a woefully indefensible position to be stuck with.  What’s more, if Creamer gets crushed on the first question, he’ll have to come up with a whole new justification for the second one on the spot.  Kinda like debating…

1.  Is the moon made of green cheese?

2.  Would the green cheese of the moon go well with eggs?

If you don’t win the first, you’re pretty much up shit creek on the second.

So, if all you sadists in Texas enjoy a massacre, pop on by and watch the carnage.  The debate will be at 5pm on Saturday, September 8th at Colin Community College and it’s free to attend.  Hit up the facebook page for the event to register and get the address.

    Obviously green moon cheese goes with green eggs and ham.

      I know! I wanted some kind of joke about the inerrant word of Dr. Seuss.

  • Amy Jo

    Thanks JT! I will definitely be there. Just around the corner from me.

    • JT Eberhard

      Let me know how he does. If he drops any arguments, it’s unwritten atheist debater code that I get to mock him straight to death.

      • David Smalley

        Yes, yes you do have that right. Therefore I shall now study.

    I get why atheists do these debates. But theists? Why do they do it? They can only win by throwing the entire concept of “debate” out the window.

    As with all apologists, Creamer will not admit that he’s beat in the first part, and continue with the second part as if he had won the argument. Anyone want to bet against that outcome?

    I assume there will be a video. I’m sure it’ll be a couple months, but could you post again once it’s up?

    Seeing these debate adverts pop up is frustrating because they’re always in some random corner of the world, hundreds of miles away, and I never get to see them until long after they’ve happened and the discussion has died down.

    I must say I feel that breed specific legislation should be outlawed. A puppy growing to be vicious isn’t based on the breed, but on who raised the dog, and for what purpose.

    My boyfriend went to Criswell College (he dropped out when he became an atheist, now he’s an engineering student). He might know that guy.
