Does God Exist? Friel-Barker Debate Analysis - Main

In March 2006 at the University of Minnesota, Todd Friel of Way of the Master Radio debated with Dan Barker of the Freedom From Religion Foundation on the question, "Does God Exist?" I couldn't find an official link to the debate, hosted by the University of Minnesota's Campus Atheists and Secular Humanists, only third-party reactions to the debate. If anyone can find an official link please let me know. The debate mp3s can be found at The Way of the Master website here.

My purpose is to evaluate this debate, its arguments, and the performance of both Friel and Barker.
