Bob Enyart Debates: Who won a debate? Both sides often claim victory, but when afterward, only one side promotes the debate, that's evidence that perhaps only one side really thinks it prevailed. Atheism, big bang, evolution, theistic evolution, physics, conservatives (we expose the liberal in the conservative), economics, national sales tax, Islam, polygamy, pot, pro-aborts, homosexuals, theology, open theism, the Sabbath, drinking alcohol, eschatology and preterism, etc. If you recall another formal or informal BEL debate, please feel free to suggest that by emailing Bob@kgov.com. Thanks!

Bob's Post-Debate Chat with DU's Barlock: Leon Gonzales recorded this 8-minute cell phone video at the conclusion of a debate he attended between creationist Bill Jack and a Denver University evolutionist Travis Barlock.

Bob Debates Michael Shermer the founder of the Skeptics Society who, though he is an editor of Scientific American, denied that the Sun is a "light" (in order to claim that the Bible is wrong on its first page for saying that the Sun is a light). This illustrates the atheist zero-concession policy.

Bob's First Debate: One weekday evening in 1968 before a classroom filled with parents of 4th graders at St. Anthony's grammar school in Hawthorne, New Jersey, nine-year-old Bob argued the importance of America fighting the Vietnam War. Forward a half-century later and as discussed at kgov.com/vietnam, the main reason we fought was to oppose the spread of international communism (by which governments have slaughtered tens of millions of their own people and robbed hundreds of millions more of their prosperity, liberty, and human dignity). So when Vietnam became the last country to fall to communism, in that vital sense, the sacrifice of our servicemen may very well have preserved liberty for hundreds of millions of people, almost none of whom have any idea whose blood bought their freedom.
