Evolutionary creation vs. young Earth creation at Scopes Trial courthouse?

If you’re gearing up for Ham on Nye on February 4 at the Creation Museum anyway, you might also squeeze this in: Evolutionary creationist Darrel Falk vs. young Earth creationist Todd Wood in Dayton Tennessee, February 3. The latter is billed as a “conversation,” mind you, at Rhea County Courthouse (home of the Scopes Trial). The event is free and open to the public.
I was able to attend a session where Darrel and Todd interacted. They have become friends but hold strongly to their core positions. Darrel is pretty much in-line with Biologos and the evolving evolutionary creationist position which has become slightly more conservative lately (I think they got concerned about losing their audience) but differs with Enns position on a historical vs allegorical Adam. Todd is a forward-thinking young age creationist but holds to the core YEC positions on scripture. They are very interesting to listen to and they both are “good on their feet” when asked questions from a gallery….I find their interactions informative since they avoid circus style polemics characteristic of the typical entertainment style debate.
Hope the result makes it to YouTube.
Note: “Evolutionary creation”: God used Darwinian evolution to create and did not necessarily know how it would turn out. In a 2012 issue, Christianity Today profiled Darrel Falk and Todd Wood) together.
