I'm on Iran's 24hr news channel

I was at a philosophy of religion conference in Tehran, Iran last week - invited as an atheist to speak to and engage with assembled philosophers, cleric. etc.

I appeared briefly on TV - unfortunately the bit of the interview they chose to broadcast was misleading as they cut the "but"...

The NCRI is comprised of 25 committees that act as shadow ministries. The committees are responsible for expert research and planning for future Iran. For more information visit http://www.ncr-iran.org/en ...

You follow the redoubtable example of Arthur Frampton—"I've been on Persian radio!" (Monty Python's Flying Circus)

They weren't interested in my buttocks, though.

I love this snippet:

2) CdeB has sung only one song which has something to do with Iran: "Eastern Wind." Surprisingly, this song, and in fact the whole album (album is called "Eastern Wind" too), is one his least popular songs in Iran.

I don't know if you are aware. but the latest reasonable doubt podcast contains a debate between Chris Hallquist and Randal Rauser, where the EGC is mentioned.

I note Rauser: 38.40 says that my evil god challenge is this:

If the world is consistent with both god and super evil being, why believe god exists rather than in an evil god?

It isn't that, as I explained to Rauser on his blog, (see my first comment - to which Rauser responds)

http://randalrauser.com/2011/10/where-stephen-law-goes-wrong-with-his-evil-god-argument/

It is therefore very puzzling that Rauser would now repeat this misunderstanding of my argument. Has he a bad memory, did he not understand my point (which was very clear), or is he intellectually dishonest?
