← Christopher Hitchens and Douglas Wilson Debate

Don_Quix's Avatar Jump to comment 28 by Don_Quix

After Hitchens points out that either all religions are true, none are true, or only one is true (in this case it is Wilson's particular flavor of Christianity), Wilson responds with a (very poor) analogy of counterfeit dollar bills vs genuine dollar bills. Essentially Wilson misses the entire point and claims that there are only a limited number of "counterfeit" bills (the *other* religions), and he can easily distinguish between those and his own "genuine" bills because they represent his own (one true) religion. Then Hitchens asks:

Hitchens: Why are your miracles the real bills and the others are all copies?

Wilson: Because they happened. Jesus really *did* rise from the dead...

Well...I guess that pretty much settles it, then. :facepalm:
