Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly has created an ongoing discussion on his show, devoted to something akin to the exposure and analysis of an atheist agenda. Previously, he spoke with atheist author Richard Dawkins about his book for young people and, on Wednesday night, O’Reilly invited writer and lecturer Deepak Chopra to, in a sense, help him “take on” atheism.
Chopra, who has made the subject spirituality his life’s work, has a new book out called War of the Worldviews: Science vs. Spirituality. “So what do you say to a guy like Dawkins?” O’Reilly wanted to know, before asking if Chopra had ever spoken with Dawkins face-to-face. “Oh, yes,” Chopra replied. “He ambushed me when I was at Oxford. He used a subterfuge. Channel 4 called me, said ‘We want to do an interview,’ I went to the interview… and it was him!”
O’Reilly had one question: “Why didn’t you kick his butt?”
