Theological/Philosophical Debate!

And the debate is...on!  My professor, Dr. Philip Clayton has extended an invitation to Dr. Daniel Dennett to a theological/philosophical debate, and the invitation has been accepted!

February 16, 2010, 2.00 - 3.00pm Albrecht Auditorium at Claremont Graduate University.

What's at stake?
Dennett is part one of the "New Athiests" along with Dawkins and Harris.  Clayton is a theologian and philopher of process thought.

What will be the nature of the debate?

The existence of God?

What will be parameters of the debate be?

Will there be audience participation with Q & A?

What will their arguments be and what sources of authority will they draw upon?

Is Dennett familiar with a Process Theology/Philosophy perspective?  This is a viewpoint that is not always understood or considered.

Will there be civility and mutual respect?  I hope so!
