This unique and rarely-held debate features Drs. Joel McDurmon and Richard Carrier. Both men come to this debate already assuming that either God exists or he does not, so this is not a philosophical debate on that question. Rather, this debate “cashes out” two diametrically opposed worldviews. This is essentially a debate on the foundations of social ethics. It places an equal burden on both speakers to advocate for their respective positions.
Dr. Carrier defends metaphysical naturalism. Dr. McDurmon defends biblical Christianity. Which one has the capacity to produce the best world? And why?
