The on-again, off-again evolution debate with Pennsylvania physics teacher Tom Ritter is apparently off indefinitely. It seems the organizers failed to arrange for a venue for the event.
I have this news from the opposing debater, Tony Whitson, who at the eleventh hour agreed to argue in favor of evolution as a science. Ritter was to argue that evolution is a faith. Whitson says the debate’s sponsor, the Constitution Party of Pennsylvania, asked several high schools to host the debate. There were no takers.
So the debate has been called off until further notice.
Now, it seems to me that, if you wish to hold a debate, it would be wise to arrange for a venue before advertising the event. Trying to find a high school to host it at the last minute near the end of the school year is just plain ludicrous.
