Moral Philosophy

3.

Religion

If I've ever done well in either of those two fields, I've done so by building off of the very solid foundation that he set.

This has the makings of an epic tournament.

Kenyon vs Fatihah : Intelligence can come from unintelligence

Seiben vs Godsands : Evolution is not a valid scientific theory (vs Special Creation)

Unitedandy vs DATCMOTO : The Bible is the infallible word of God

Mirza vs Banker : Islam is a negative influence on society

Cody vs Racist : God is moral

etc.

THAT IS ALWAYS WHAT I READ HIS NAME AS.

That was actually entirely accidental, but in all fairness as a Ph.D he should have been aware that people would read his name that way.

I'd pay to see that one.

I've been trying to get him to debate me on that subject for weeks. He won't do it on the grounds that "I don't debate common sense".
I even sent the challenge and he rejected it. I'd love to see him debate Kenyon, but it's a bit like using a rocket launcher to break a cardboard box.

Yeah, but Kenyon is pretty solid for a cardboard box..

I don't get it: isn't God an immaterial being? Or, is this about a different sort of God?

On religion, the best debaters definitely tend to be Christians. InquireTruth, popculturepooka and Trent_H are 3 of the finest debaters on religion, and J.Kenyon's defence of Christianity against C_N was fantastic as well. On the atheist side, maybe only Freeman and TheSkeptic would be competitive against those 3, which bodes well for me cause I'm taking on pcp in the debate tournament :(
