R.C. Metcalf to Debate Dan Barker at Tufts in Boston

Dr. R.C. Metcalf is scheduled to debate Dan Barker at Tufts University on the topic of the Resurrection. The debate is being sponsored by the Tufts Freethought Society. Last year’s debate was between Dr. Daniel Dennett, author of Breaking the Spell, and Dinesh D’Souza, author of What’s So Great About Christianity, on the topic of the existence of God. This debate can be viewed here via YouTube clips organized on Richard Dawkins’ website.

Dan Barker is the president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, the largest atheist organization in America devoted to separation of church and state issues. Mr. Barker was once an evangelical pastor and is an accomplished songwriter. He is the author of Losing Faith in Faith. Dan’s bio is available here.
