I hate to say it, but Barry Lynn & Co. stomped Wm. Buckley & Co.
tonight. It was basically hard-core science (in spite of Michael Ruse)
against philosophical mush. The final image of the debate was classic
though. Barry Lynn, who had requested the debate, made reference to
John 1:1 - "In the beginning was the Word..." Then he said, "Maybe the
Word was 'evolve'." To substitute Jesus with evolution is blasphemous,
and with his last words, Lynn perfectly characterized his position in
exactly the way Phil Johnson had been trying to do but with much less
success. As an added bonus, Lynn undoubtedly nauseated or infuriated
the conservative Christians across America. Talk about pulling defeat
out of the jaws of victory!
