I got this email a short while ago from a religious publisher:
Dear Dr. Coyne,
My name is [name redacteed] and I lead the [name of division and publisher]. Dr. William Lane Craig is one of our authors and we are planning to organize a debate next April or May in Chicago, and would like to invite you to participate as his opponent. I let Dr. Craig know that I was planning to contact you, and he welcomes the opportunity to debate, and has suggested this topic: Are Science and Religion Incompatible? We think this will be a good opportunity for two opposing positions on this issue to have a fair hearing, and to benefit a wide audience both in person and online.
If you’re interested we can discuss additional details, but I wanted to first share the idea and hear your thoughts.
Thanks, Dr. Coyne.
No thank you. It would look good on his c.v., but not so good on mine.jac
