    Was his rambling incoherent speech an argument? What is there to respond to? The guy isn't fighting in the war. All this guy does is write books for the average know-it-all jack-ass.

    If you had ANY intellectual capacity, you'd realize that he presented FACTS and a valid POV.

    So, which of his books have you read?








    (NOT holding my breath. I know someone else told you to think that, and your come-back will be that it's just ALL so beneath you to waste the time.)

    Hey! I've got an idea! How's about you moving your sorry ass off to a muslim country, and spewing your drivel to THEM? I mean, they wouldn't harm YOU, just 'cuz you refuse to fall into lockstep with their agenda...

    I take it you agree with Hitchens's anti-theism as presented in God Is Not Great? I thought you were a Christian of some sort...

    Hipeter fails to see this since that's precisely his style of argument. At least, unlike Hipeter, Hitchens has the balls to criticize Zionism as well.

    I'd say that God is Not Great is more anti-religion than anti-theism. When he addresses faith itself, the fundamental point he makes about faith in some sort of higher being is that that is based on the argument of design; thus concluding that faith in a higher being is not logical. And, that seems spot on as faith is a set of ideas that is not based on proof (beliefs).

    Being a Christian has NEVER precluded the study of Both Sides of the Coin, as it were,

    and when you HEAR the truth,

    REGARDLESS of your basic beliefs,

    you know it for what it is: TRUTH.

    Christianity is something of a mystery, in that we are to allow and, indeed, cherish, ALL peoples. We're instructed to look at everything, and filter it through the lens of our beliefs.

    I also don't "hate" gay folks, nor murderers, nor liars, nor any (by my standards) of supposed "bad folks,"

    UNLESS they demand that I throw aside my loving God to behave and act as they do.

    One of my absolute HEROES of all time has been the author, Isaac Asimov,

    a PROFESSED atheist.
