Does God Exist? Greg Bahnsen vs. Gordon Stein

There are a lot of great theism/atheism debates out there. But this one is surely a classic. For those not familiar with the transcendental argument for the existence of God or Greg Bahnsen, this should be a good introduction.

Here is the transcript of the debate.

    I cannot download the transcript. Is it still posted?

    Give it a shot now.

    Thanks for posting.

    Just thought I'd let you know that part 2 is actually part 1, and part 1 is actually part 2.

    Is there a full mp3 file of this debate for free anywhere? I may just be inept, but I can't seem to find it, including on this page. A transcript is nice, but I'd like to hear the actual debate.

    There is "probably" audio out there somewhere. I used to have a copy hosted here – but the Covenant Media Foundation has cracked down on anyone posting it anywhere. I guess they want to get paid for you to listen to it – you can get it here.

    Thanks for the transcript! I gave it to a friend of mine who is going to translate it into Spanish (hopefully soon). I'll let you know when I get it.

    Here's the audio version of the debated posted on youtube. The first part was posted when I first came across them sometime ago but it has since been taken off for supposed copyright infringement:

    Thanks for posting! Excellent demonstration of presuppositional apologetics at work to demonstrate the internal consistency of a Christian Theistic worldview. I'm very new to Presuppositionalism and it's application.

    Hey Brian,

    Do you have the audio for the discussion R.C. Sproul and Greg Bahnsen did on apologetic methodology? I've been looking but haven't been able to find it anywhere.

    No, sorry Eric.
