Unbelievable? PZ Myers and Denis Alexander on Faith and Science

From PZ's blog:
As mentioned previously, my interview on British Christian talk radio is now available — you can download the mp3 directly, and you can join in an online discussion, in which I am accused of "scientism"…which is rather pecuilar, given that in the interview I rather specifically said there were phenomena for which science is not the best tool for examination (although I would also say that there are no phenomena which require something beyond natural mechanisms).

The interviewer also thinks Plantinga's arguments are good, which we didn't talk about at all, but which would have triggered some on-air gagging noises if they had come up.




From Premier.org.uk:
Atheist Biologist PZ Myers is an outspoken critic of Christianity. He believes that faith in God and science are contradictory. He debates theistic evolutionist Denis Alexander, Director of the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion. Is science is at odds with Christianity as PZ claims?
