Kane vs. Hippler in St. Paul, MN
This debate centered on the question of whether Christian or Humanist ethics provide a better account of obligatory moral claims. Both debaters ultimately fail to make an affirmative case, however, both of them do a fairly good job of tearing down the other’s case. The conclusion must be that if there is such a thing as obligatory moral claims, you shouldn’t try to get at them from the worldviews presented herein this discussion. That said, it was a fairly worthwhile and enjoyable debate, with plenty of genuine back and forth.
