Go to: Christopher Hitchens - God Is Not Great

Very good interview.

Kudos to those at Point of Inquiry. They do great work. Intelligent, tough questions and adult conversations. I wish the rest of the media would rise to their level.

If you haven't heard of them before they have a number of their shows available on their website and as podcast subscriptions thru iTunes. (I'm not affiliated, just a big fan.)

It'd be ironic when someone close to him suddenly becomes ill and would benefit from stem cell research. What would he support then?

We all know that answer. In fact, you can almost guarantee that this whole 'controversy' will disappear when the first therapy from embryonic stem cells appears to be effective. It's inevitable. Then all the 'high-minded' people who oppose this research will line up at the nearest clinic.

I wish people would realize the danger of following religious leaders on subjects relating to science. It's not like they have the best track record here. Remember, it wasn't long ago when the church opposed organ transplants as well. How many lives have been saved through that procedure in the last 40 years?

I would recommend that you all go straight to the comments section on the Guardian site. The cavalry are already sticking the boot in to this poor fellow good and proper.

I almost feel sorry for him...

Holy Sh*t, no kidding. He's being pummeled page upon page...

I'm almost beginning to believe there are A LOT more rational-thinking non-belivers out there than I ever imagined. I guess the publication of these books (Dawkins, Harris, Dennett, and Hitchens) and thier sales figures really are having an effect of emboldening some courage to speak up in public. Let's hope it continues.

Go to: The 'Is God...Great?' Debate

Reza Aslan debating Sam Harris.

I was going to say the same.

Although upon re-listening to that debate I thought Sam was being particularly non-confrontational. I've heard him knock down many of the points Reza was making in other debates. I'm not sure why he let them go in that one.
