Today we praise Athenian democracy and philosophy but tend not to mention Athenian pederasty and slavery. Mr. Hitchens denies the right of modern christians to overlook the unpleasant passages about genocide, slavery etc. catching them at the statement that the bible is a exact word of God and must be followed literally.

God is Not Great. God is not Omnipotent. Why? Because if God exists, HE / SHE/ IT must have a set of Physical/ Mathematical laws to create everything So, the God is limited by Physical/ Mathematical laws. And if I were God I would give chance to Human to understand who I am by analyzing the physical formulas, equations and laws So, logically, catching the thread of the physics Human can understand Me and My Work For example. God and the Genesis 0f Universe. Fundamental Theory 0f Existence 1. The infinite vacuum: T=0K, 2. The particle: C/D = pi, R/N= k , E = Mc^2 = kc^2 , h = 0 , i^2= -1 3. The spins: h =E/t , h =kb, h* = h/2pi , 4. The photon, the inertia, 5. The electron: e^2 = h*ca, E = h*f , electromagnetic field 6. The gravitation, the star/ planet, the time, 7. The proton, 8. The atom(s), 9. The cell(s), 10. The Laws: a) The Law of conservation and transformation energy/mass b) The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle / Law c) The Pauli Exclusion Principle/ Law 11. The test. ============================. Best wishes. Israel Sadovnik Socratus

As if he could characterize all Christianity on the basis of a statement made by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Shameful. You conveniently forgot the references he made to the bible - are they also 'laughably deficient'? If there's anything that's laughable, it's religion. All of them.

The crowd was hard to watch. Not many intelligent questions out of them. But I'm liking Hitchens more and more each time I hear him speak. I didn't know who he was until came along, being a recovering baptist.

Rainerjosef Not sure what you're on about? Like many of the posters on Fora threads, you don't seem to have a clue either. You're in over your head. The fact that humour is next to godly & that irony is a thinking man's best friend are not even within your purview. Your stupid, pointless, and, dare I say, illiterate remarks only show how ill-equipped so many are to grapple with their shallow lives & rise above them. Laughter & crying are interchangeable & indistinguishable, but subtlety isn't your strong suit, is it?

Part of the audience is appalling, and I don't mean the Q&A session, thant one too. No, I mean the part when Hitch talks about the terrors of North Corea and those estupidos just keep laughing, even after he says "You laugh, and I try to make you cry". It must have been hard for a man like him to endure such stupidity. I know this type of audiences from stand-up comedians' programs, when they stop being funny for a moment wishing to shake the dumbos and they just can't stop laughing and laughing. Well, thats what they paid for, so that's what they do. They laugh. Same here with Hitch.

Jefferson and other signatories understood the value of religion, not by its truth but by its usefulness. His private writings reveal his lack of belief. Niether does Hitchens claim secularists are immune to violence and sin, but a quick browse thru the bible is enough to know we haven't reached the heinous level of its monstrous author. Thankfully, like Goldielocks and the Three Bears its a fairytale.
