Trinity College Dublin Debate on Evolution, Creation, & Materialism: October 16, 2008
|September 8, 2008||Posted by Paul Nelson under Intelligent Design|
On Thursday, 16 October 2008, the University Philosophical Society of Trinity College, Dublin — the world’s oldest debating society (founded 1684) — will sponsor a debate on evolution, creation, and materialism. The debate will occur at 7:30 pm in the Debating Room of the Graduates’ Memorial Building (that’s the building in the photograph above), just off the College’s Front Square.
The evening’s discussion will open with a paper read by Bob Bloomfield of the British Museum [scroll down in the link for Bloomfield’s biography and current work]. Responses will then follow from David Berlinski, Fellow at the Discovery Institute, Stephen Moore, of the Northern Ireland based Giants’ Causeway Creation Committee, and me. Opposing will be Christopher Stillman, Fellow Emeritus in Geology at Trinity College Dublin, Darren McCallig, the university’s Anglican Chaplain, and David Coquhoun of University College London.
Fine Irish beverages of various types to be consumed later, of course…
