Hitchens demolishes Turek in this debate.

im just listening to the christian right now... he is spending all his time making an argument for a creator. but in no way does any of that prove the existence of a personal god or the rightiousness of any religion.

...2 hours later...

i hate myself for watching this entire debate. it full of so much bullshit... repetition, ignorance, missed points, stupid points, name dropping... :roll:

Hitchens needs to shut the fuck up and get to his point... that bitch digresses like a motherfucker. It wasn't an overwhelming win. I would have rather listened to the moderator talk for the entire 2 hours.

instead of wasting ur time on this garbage, you should watch the Richard Dawkins documentary Root of All Evil? (2006)

:lol: I could listen to Hitchens all day. Well, not so much anymore as I've read his book and watched a lot of his debates within a pretty short time span, but I think he has a lot to offer. He offers so many insightful points and tidbits of information when he digresses that it makes it worth it to hear him out ... in my opinion. I think he kicks the shit out of the majority of his opponents with the exception being William Lane Craig. He was just off his game in that one. I agree that everyone should check out "The Root of All Evil" though >:)

I agree with Abemore that there is too much digression and name dropping but like Thoughtprocess123 i too could listen to him all day (like Stephen Fry).

The blantant arrogance of 'i know the creator' in such a short span of human knowledge stinks and can't realisitcally be reasoned with. It's blind faith personified.
