I do hope it is put up on You Tube, I wish I could make it to the debate, even though Shermer is always too nice, and Chopra too annoying.

Ooh, this is now only about a week away!

I’m really looking forward to seeing how this plays out :)

Does anyone know if there have been any updates re: the debate going up on youtube or the internet?

Awesome debate. Did anyone else think Jean was spouting complete gibberish the whole time? I didn’t understand what anything she said had to do with anything anyone else was talking about.

I was wondering if it was my own bias toward some sort of male-dominated form of discussion that her stuff sounded like complete garbage to me. It seemed like she should’ve gone to a poetry slam or something instead. Poor Deepak was fighting all by himself while Jean was busy regaling us with enchanted tales of yonder.

I was looking for an *mp3 version—looked like I need to set aside the time and watch it…

Jackson, I must appreciate you for the links you have shared. I have gone through the links and found the lectures useful. I think whoever will go through the links will be benefited for sure.
