Skeptically Speaking (S.03, ep.02): Debate The Contribution of Christianity to Western Civiliza…

The dedicated Skeptically Speaking team returns this Thursday at 9:00pm EDT (8:00pm Jamaica time) to bring you our first debate of the season where we ask “What has Christianity contributed to Western Civilization?” The claim is often made that Christianity is the “godmother” of Western science and laid the very foundation of Western thought on matters of law, ethics, and human rights, but how true is this claim? Did Christianity indeed serve as the catalyst for all of these Western achievements, or was it simply an unrelated bystander sometimes retarding the very advancements it claimed to have initiated? 

Live in studio to debate this topic are none other than renowned Jamaican theologian Rev. Dr. Clinton Chisolm and engineer and communications strategy consultant Dr. Patrick White. Both debaters have traded shots in the national newspaper of Jamaica, the Gleaner, but for the first time they have the luxury of debating in real time for a worldwide audience.
