Julian also draws attention to an interesting account of a quasi-debate between Plantinga and Dennett. I really think that the days of ignoramuses who think they can “argue” against Christianity without making any effort to understand it, resorting to tired old tropes about “Spaghetti Monsters” etc.. are drawing to a close. See eg the commentary in The Selfish Gene Delusion
It's hard to believe that the launch is only on Monday. A friend (with 38 credited movies on IMDB) will be videoing it so we should have some decent footage. So far about 1,600 books have been sold - with very little publicity - so we'll see what happens. Polkinghorne is supposed to be on the Today Programme on Monday around 08:30 - though that won't be confirmed until Sunday.
