James White vs former Catholic Answers Vice President Patrick Madrid. This is the debate that prompted one of the most outrageous articles in the history of This Rock magazine.Well, the article White is referring to is the one I just read! Far from "outrageous" - it was right on the mark. The transcript of this debate is also available for free from White's site (click here). I believe some of the "different ideas" White used on Madrid, and Madrid commented on the novelty of them, were ideas White developed in debates he was having with me prior to the San Diego debate with Patrick. The "pen" story and the "bike shop" story are both analogies I had heard from White before (and refuted too, so it was a bit of surprise that he'd actually use them in debate!).
Anyway, not much more for now - but this reading got some ideas a-churnin' - I'll share more later as these ideas come closer to reality. In the mean time, if you haven't read Patrick's article, I recommend it!
