← Are Darwin's Theories Fact or Faith Issues?

I posted this comment in the forums:

"Should PZM have taken part in this broadcast?

Richard has said that he refuses to debate with creationists because it gives then the oxygen of publicity and gives the impression that there is a genuine scientific issue. On the other hand, if PZM (and others) had refused to debate with Simmons then Simmons would have been able to spout his nonsense unopposed (which was the original plan by the radio station).

I am undecided."

I wonder if Richard is having second thoughts after PZM did such a good job in this debate?
