OK, this debate sounds like it's going to be a good one. It certainly won't be boring. I'm guessing it either has occurred, or about to occur, in Sydney, Australia. The topic of the debate is, get this, "Would the world be better of without religion"?
One of the participants in the "Affirmative" camp is Vic Stenger, who certainly will be basing a lot of his argument on his book. In fact, he also has written a short article arguing some of his points in a Sydney newspaper.
Did anyone attended this? I'd like to hear what happened. Did anyone ended up being burnt at the stake? :)
