1) If evolution is true then God does not exist.

2) Evolution is true.

3) Therefore, God does not exist.

[The title of the panel debate suggests that one of the debaters was a theistic evolutionist (or, as some of them prefer to be called, “evolutionary Christians”).  Despite one of the debater’s (Duane Gish) repeated attempts to characterize another of the debaters (Hugh Ross) as a theistic evolutionist, that was (and still is) not the case.  Hugh Ross is a Contructive Integrationist (a.k.a. Progressive Creationist, though Ross does not like that term since it is often misunderstood and therefore misused by people like Duane Gish) who accepts the Genesis (and many other biblical) creation account(s) as literal, but he cites many Hebrew scholars who have pointed out that the “days” of Genesis 1 & 2 should be correctly (literally) interpreted as meaning long periods of time.]

http://www.uncommondescent.com/intelligent-design/are-these-atheists-and-agnostics-really-covert-creationists/

[That article quotes Thomas Nagel, Ph.D. (Philosophy), from his new book, Mind and Cosmos:Why the Materialist Neo-Darwinian Conception of Nature Is Almost Certainly False.  Nagel has admitted several things which his fellow atheists have not, including the following in his previous book,  The Last Word  .  “I want atheism to be true and am made uneasy by the fact that some of the most intelligent and well-informed people I know are religious believers.  It isn’t just that I don’t believe in God and, naturally hope that I’m right in my belief.  It’s that I hope that there is no God!  I don’t want there to be a God;        I don’t want the universe to be like that.]

More from Thomas Nagel on Neo-Darwinian Evolution and the Chemical Origin of Life

http://www.evolutionnews.org/2012/10/more_from_thoma065131.html

      &

From a fruitful method, materialism becomes an axiom: If science can’t quantify something, it doesn’t exist, and so the subjective, unquantifiable, immaterial ‘manifest image’ of our mental life is proved to be an illusion.  Here materialism bumps up against itself.  Nagel insists that we know some things to exist even if materialism omits or ignores or is oblivious to them.  Reductive materialism doesn’t account for the ‘brute facts’ of existence — it doesn’t explain, for example, why the world exists at all, or how life arose from nonlife.  Closer to home, it doesn’t plausibly explain the fundamental beliefs we rely on as we go about our everyday business: the truth of our subjective experience, our ability to reason, our capacity to recognize that some acts are virtuous and others aren’t.  These failures, Nagel says, aren’t just temporary gaps in our knowledge, waiting to be filled in by new discoveries in science.  On its own terms, materialism cannot account for brute facts. Brute facts are irreducible, and materialism, which operates by breaking things down to their physical components, stands useless before them.  ‘There is little or no possibility,’ he writes, ‘that these facts depend on nothing but the laws of physics.’  … If materialism is true as an explanation of everything — and they insist it is — then psychological facts, for example, must be reducible to biology, and then down to chemistry, and finally down to physics.  If they weren’t reducible in this way, they would (ta-da!) be irreducible.  And any fact that’s irreducible would, by definition, be uncaused and undetermined; meaning it wouldn’t be material…  Materialism can only be taken seriously as a philosophy through a heroic feat of cognitive dissonance; pretending, in our abstract, intellectual life, that values like truth and goodness have no objective content even as, in our private life, we try to learn what’s really true and behave in a way we know to be good.”
