I have the tape of the debate, but it's been a while since I've viewed
it. As I recall, Will was using Power Point overheads and projected what
I offered as his quote on the screen. Then he went through each point
and briefly discussed them.

If you, Tim (or anyone), would like to borrow the tape (Darwinism:
Science or Naturalistic Philosophy? The Debate Between William B.
Provine and Phillip E. Johnson at Berkeley, 1994), just let me know
off-line and send me your physical address. I just ask that you watch it
within two weeks of receipt and return it to me when finished.
