Sye Ten Bruggencate vs. Justin Schieber on Yahweh or Myweh

Recently, Sye appeared on Justin's podcast to discuss presuppositional apologetics.  It appeared that this particular episode was arranged in order to discuss Justin's lecture on presuppositional apologetics.  However, while some of this was discussed, the two spent more time debating the issues in general.

I must say that this is one of the best encounters i've heard on this topic; probably as good, if not better, than Sye's first interaction with Paul Baird on unbelievable.  This was a fast paced contrasting of positions in a near hour of non-stop cross examination from both sides.  While I thought that Sye kept his demeanor at a very patient level, I was a bit disappointed with Justin's performance as he seemed annoyed and frustrated throughout the exchange.

Sye has also informed me that Justin's recording was edited.  I have yet to listen to the unedited version, but will make it available once Sye grants permission or posts in publicly.  At the least, there is supposed to be a transcript of the unedited recording forthcoming.

To listen to the "edited" version of the exchange, go HERE.

The edits were so insignificant, it is amazing that Sye is making such a big deal of them. I will probably end up posting the original next month when my service allows me to. And yes, I was very annoyed and frustrated.

I have challanged Sye to a more formal debate, where we cannot interrupt eachother as we both did in this recording. I also want to clarify some of my points and redact on some blunders I made under pressure. So far, he has denied interest in doing such a debate.

I, as well as others on both sides, do hope he changes his mind.

Justin, i'd like to hear a formal debate between you and Sye as well. If you are looking for a PA who will agree to a debate, Jamin Hubner and Chris Bolt appear willing to do so. If I can ever quit working two jobs and have some time on my hands, i'd like to debate you one of these days as well.

Chris Bolt contributes to and has done several debates that you can listen to on that site. He's trained in philosophy and think he would make a good opponent for you.

Cool, I will check it out. I have heard of 'choosing hats' but now I have a name to attach. Thanks.

BTW, I have uploaded the original version of the Sye interview with musical intro/outro for the Yahweh podcast.

Take care,
