Index: The Lowder-Vandergriff Debate: Naturalism vs. Christian Theism: Where Does the Evidence Point? (2014) November 29, 2014

 

Note: The rules for the debate did not impose a limit on the words per minute (WPM) ratio for each speech. Because of the quantity of arguments and objections in this debate, each debater had to balance the desire to be understood with the desire to answer as many arguments as possible. Mr. Lowder elected to keep his speaking rate at a modest pace because this debate was originally an audio debate for a podcast. Mr. Vandergriff elected to speak at a much faster rate in order to make as many points as possible, but after the debate many listeners complained that they were unable to follow him. (As explained here, Vandergriff did not cheat by doing so.) Readers of this transcript should keep in mind the differences in speaking rates as they read the transcript.
