This is a response to a hangout hosted by Kristi Winters featuring Kevin Logan, Garrett and Michael Rowlands. A follow up hangout is, apparently, scheduled for Sat 4th March.
Here is the original:
“Sargon vs creationists: Are they any different?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0pcH0HdLxw
Whilst I recommend watching the original hangout, or at least the first hour, every clip of the hangout I reference includes a time point in the bottom left of screen to allow you to check out the context.
