New York Apologetics hosted a debate at Stony Brook University on April 16, 2015. The debate was one of the most well attended events held in that auditorium as the place was filled to capacity and over one hundred people were sitting out in the lobby watching the debate on on live stream. The topic of the debate was Morality, better explained by God or Science. Interestingly enough, according to a letter to the editor published in The Statesman on April 30th, the debate was full of hate speech. In this letter free speech was openly attacked and bullied. In response to this letter both Dr. Michael Shermer and the Dr. Frank Turek have combined and responded to this published letter by writing The Statesman a letter of the their own.
