You suggest: creation versus evolution, a debate

From a reader:

The Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation with the assistance of friends at the University of Kentucky has scheduled a debate on theistic evolution with a retired biology professor and a priest of the Lexington Diocese. The debate will take place in the hall of the Catholic cathedral in the Lexington Diocese from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, May 22, 2014. The event is open to the public.

The Kolbe center proposition is the following:

Be it resolved that the traditional Catholic doctrine of special creation -- the creation of all things by God's fiat at the beginning -- is a better explanation of all the facts of Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, Magisterial teaching, and natural science than theistic evolution. 

The opponents will argue against this proposition.
