The Shermer-Taunton Dialogue (Video)
A riveting conversation on life's big questions.
Christian Larry Taunton of Fixed Point Foundation and atheist Michael Shermer of Skeptic Magazine meet in Birmingham, Alabama for a lively debate on big ideas, from human nature, meaning, and the Bible to morality, civil rights, and more. Where do Christianity and secularism lead, and what are their effects throughout history? While Shermer claims that humanity is getting "better" and that we're outgrowing our need for religion, Taunton argues that belief in God is the driving force behind the good in the world.
