Famous Debates

We have linked to either the audio/video of an actual debate or the transcription. These are considered especially important due to their participants, special arguments or other historical reasons.

Warren-Flew Debate
Held in Denton, TX in September, 1976, this debate took place over four successive nights and featured Thomas Warren, Dr. of Philosophy of the Harding Graduate School of Religion in Memphis, TN and Dr. Anthony Flew. Dr. Warren was a personal friend and one of my favorite professors in graduate school. Obviously much ground was covered including evolution and philosophical arguments for the existence of God. This debate is important for nothing else than the fact hat it took place over four nights and could hold the distinction as the longest debate on the Existence of God on record.
