S&R Debates at FreedomFest This Weekend

FreedomFest, described as an “intellectual feast in a fun town” and the “world’s largest gathering of free minds,” began yesterday in Las Vegas, but the big event is this evening, when Christopher Hitchens and Dinesh D’Souza debate “War, Terrorism & Geo-Political Crisis: Is Religion the Solution or the Problem?” Skeptic magazine’s Michael Shermer will also be there, and on Saturday, to wrap up the event, he’ll team up with Reason magazine science correspondent Ronald Bailey to take on the Discovery Institute’s Stephen Meyer in a debate over the question, “Is There Scientific Evidence for Intelligent Design in Nature?” Shermer will be sharing with us his thoughts on how it went, so stay tuned. —Heather Wax
