The process for fielding questions is as follows: Ask a focused question. Longwinded monologues should not occur. Feel free to address your question to the debater of your choice. No follow up questions.
Mr. D’Souza and Dr. Shermer are allotted 20 minutes each to establish their individual positions. Immediately following, each will be allotted an additional 5 minutes for rebuttal. Finally, each will be allowed to present a question to the other, with each being allowed 3 minutes to reply.
