    It’s taken me about 20 minutes to get through the accents, but this is indeed interesting.

    I was a little bit disappointed with McGrath’s performance. I kept waiting for him to get going but he never really did.

    I can’t believe Peter Atkins would say that there are no limits to science.

    He also states that there no questions of consequence that begin with the word “why?”, but rather they should be asked with “how?”. That certainly was an interesting statement.

    Do you know where I might be able to find a transcript of this debate?

    I still think the Bahnsen/Stein debate is the best Christian/Atheist debate ever.

    I believe Justin is referring to the debate between McGrath vs Dawkins and NOT McGrath vs Atkins.
