While on our God or Godless Alberta Tour John Loftus and I recorded a show with Justin Brierley of the radio show and podcast “Unbelievable.” It was just broadcast today (June 15th) in the UK. Now you can listen to it here: The Outsider Test of Faith & Miracle And if you haven’t checked out […]
God or Godless
Check out the review of God or Godless by Chris Hallquist (aka The Uncredible HALLQ). You can read it here.
Of the three debates we had on the “God or Godless Alberta Tour”, the final night in Edmonton was the liveliest. So even if you’ve already listened to the first debate in Calgary, you can find something worth checking out here: different conversations, different questions, and a different moderator in Myron Penner. Myron definitely added his […]
Here it is folks, the audio for our first night’s debate in Calgary. You can listen to it by clicking here. (I recommend you right-click and download the file rather than listening from the website.) The opening statements are 20 minutes each followed by forty minutes of back-and-forth, no-holds-barred, cage-match-style, sudden-death dialogue. The final forty minutes consists of […]
Check it out here. From podcasting on the highway to debating in a church to a pint of microbrew late in the evening, a good time was had by all.
You can read the review here. Counter Apologist provides a balanced review and has great things to say about both Loftus and me and the book itself. However, as you can guess, CA was more critical of me. Indeed, he states this rather baldly as follows: “That all said, I’m an atheist, of course I think […]
Each of the first two nights of the tour we had about fifty people which wasn’t bad since we had virtually no promotion in Calgary or Red Deer. (Things would have been very different had we done the tour during the university semester, for in that case we could have had the events on University […]
Last night John Loftus and I had our second debate at Unity Baptist Church in Red Deer, Alberta. I am happy to say it was another excellent mix of Christians and atheists. The Q&A with the audience got a bit heated at times, though not as much as the previous night. Particularly notable was the […]
You can read the article about our forthcoming Edmonton debate here.
You can check out Paul Buller’s account of the debate here. Paul thought I “won” the debate (to the extent that it is helpful to speak of such events in terms of winning). Of course, I guarantee many of the CFI people who were there thought I was the big loser! I could tell by […]
Yesterday John Loftus and I debated “God or Godless” at Renfrew Baptist Church in Calgary, AB. This evening we debate at Unity Baptist Church in Red Deer, AB, and tomorrow we square off for our last night debating at Greenfield Baptist Church in Edmonton, AB. So far it has been an engaging and busy series. […]
Robert Price reviewed God or Godless in Free Inquiry Magazine and John Loftus is over the moon about it. He emailed me and the Baker publicist yesterday to let us know. In his email he gleefully wrote: “Unfortunately [Price] doesn’t have anything good to say about Randal’s arguments saying I ‘systematically punctured’ them like one who popped […]
The latest review comes from the “Panorama of a Book Saint” blog. You can read the review here. The blogger, Dr. Conrade Yap, liked the book and was more sympathetic with my arguments (not surprising given that he is a Christian theist). However, Dr. Yap does say some things that left me perplexed and suspecting […]
Janet Parshall is a nationally syndicated radio host in the United States. On Monday evening she will be having John Loftus and me on her show “In the Market” for a little God or Godless debate. You can check out the details here.
