← Pell, Dawkins wage battle of belief

Hitchens had a way of making these type of people feeling as if they should be very embarrassed for their drivel. He would also get feisty with a crowed for cheering some bad point made by the other side. He seemed to get more fired up and have the best comebacks in these situations. Dawkins, on the other hand, gets a bit too exasperated by the sheer ignorance on display and unfortunately he doesn't seen to have a clear and succinct response to it. I don't blame him for getting this way, but it harms his debate performance. Dawkins should either decline invitations in debating those who are full of sheer ignorance, or have a better, shorter, less nuanced response when it is on display.
