Compose your reflection essay (minimum of 400 words)
Your reflection essay should respond to one of the following sets of discussion questions:
- If there was not a clear winner, what do you think was the best argument that the theist brought? The best argument by the naturalist?
- Were there any points in the debate where their beliefs were simply incommensurable – points at which they really could not establish any common ground as a basis for productive discussion? See if you can identify two or three of these points.
- Clearly, this naturalist and this theist were working with some conflicting assumptions. Can you identify some of the deeper-level assumptions that each one held?
