Dinesh D'Souza, the acclaimed pop-apologist who is more fleet-footed than a man with airplanes for toes, will be up against Dan "The Music-Man" Barker in a steel cage death match...with a podium. The one who is declared victorious will, once and for all, decide: "Can we be good without God?". And, icing on the cake, PZ "The Overlord" Myers will be there to watch. Reserve your tickets.
I personally can't wait to hear Dinesh repeat the same things that he has already stated in articles, books, and previous debates (including jokes for Christ's sake)! Will Barker finally make it clear to audiences everywhere that Dinesh is far from the scholar others make him out to be, and that he is no more than a polemicist with shoddy half-baked pseudo-philosophical arguments that could be torn to pieces by anyone with the slightest amount of knowledge of the subjects that he brings up? Or will it be like every other debate? We'll have to wait and find out. Ooooo...the suspense is killing me!
[Author's note: When I say that Dinesh is "fleet-footed", I am only referring to his ability to Gish Gallop and also to suggest that he is a coward, and I am in no ways suggesting that he is any better than other debaters at performing in track and field events. I am on record as saying that Dinesh might not beat my fat ass at a 50 yard dash, and I hope that others will see the bravery that it requries to take that position.]
