Why debate religion but not science?

After reading more I've learned the debate at Messiah is actually designed to be a series of one-on-one interviews with the media. Wired wrote an interesting article asking why the candidates are willing to discuss issues in a religious context, but not in a scientific one. Hear hear.

We spent the last eight years under a religious zealot. That didn't get us anywhere good. One of the reasons I support Obama is because he is erudite. I hope he won't bow to religious leaders on any issues which are important to me (climate change, stem cell research, peak oil, renewable energy, etc.)

Debate at Messiah

Messiah College, my alma mater, is hosting what promises to be an interesting presidential candidate debate focused on moral and ethical issues.
