The discussion goes live at 1pm Central (11am Pacific/2pm Eastern) on Saturday, July 21, 2018. Here’s the link to view live (and watch later):

The Moral Argument
The Moral Argument is a subject we’ve discussed several times on Capturing Christianity. Check out the archives. Roughly, the argument goes like this:
(2) Moral facts do exist.
(3) God exists.
IP will be taking the affirmative, while CS will be taking the skeptical position. Really looking forward to it!
