Tonight, Nov. 9 2010, I’ll be hosting our third “Knights of Contention” real time streaming audio/visual debate. Direct link to the ‘debate hall.’
There is no requirement that you actually speak. You will want speakers to hear any conversation. You will want a microphone if you want to dialog via voice. A webcam is ok, too, but not required.
Tonight’s topic: Just what is a Christian? Are Lutherans Christian? Are Catholics Christian? What about Baptists, atheists, Mormons, or cats?
This will be the initial topic but its pretty fluid and informal and who knows where we’ll end up.
Previous Knights of Contention posts can be found browsing here.
For further reading on how I will be approaching this topic, you may consider these blog entries of old:
I will be alluding to Bertrand Russell to begin with (as I did in the propositionally blog entry above) and his essay, “Why I am Not a Christian.”
