Five for Hitch, always. That other guy is a giant blowhard.

And Hitchens isn't a giant blowhard?
I mean, he's pretty brilliant, but he's prone to excessive casuistry for the sake of it. He's a pretty fucked up guy.

millerman13
Oh, absolutely. By no means did I mean that Todd's blowhardiness detracts from Hitchens'. The only difference is that Hitch is on my side.

I think this is the first time a Christian has been more smug than Christopher Hitchens and he's jealous.
StanleyPain
I love it when smug Christians think they're logically steamrolling people with stupid shit.

Free clue for those who actually think this crap is an "argument": If someone like Hitchens is spending their life criticizing religion and becoming a figure of atheist thought, you're not going too SCAAAAARRRE them with OMG WHAT IF YOU GO TO HELL questions. That is the argument of someone with poor intelligence backed into a corner with nothing else left to fight with.

I can only imagine how Friel would react to these comments:

"Okay, but what if - just what if - remember we're just playing a little game of 'what if' here - what if I was, say, rubber, and on the contrary you were more like glue? Just imagine that's the case. Okay? Now, wouldn't you have to agree that everything you say would bounce off of me, and stick to you? Wouldn't YOU be the smug blowhard instead of me? Sir? Wouldn't you? But wouldn't you? Remember, we're just playing a game here."

it's quite heartwarming how affirmative action has given the mentally retarded a chance to start their own radio shows.

Remember: we're only playing a little game. Please just answer the questions in the manner in which I anticipated that you would. No, no, no, do not challenge the premise of my questions... it's only a game.

So you introduce your guest as one of the most intelligent journalists in the world, and then you subject him to a retarded quasi-game show where you ask him questions that amount to "What if there was God and a Hell? Shouldn't you suck up to him just in case?"

I pondered those questions when I was 6. Didn't he think Hitchens might have already considered those questions while writing a book on religion?

Wretched radio indeed.
IrishWhiskey
It's a Poe's Law in effect. The Christian radio host is nearly indistinguishable from an Atheist asking rhetorical questions:

Do you work on Sunday? Were you bad as a kid? Were you ever unfairly angry? Do you covet? Do you deny that you are a slave? Because if you believe in God, then you have to reconcile the idea he made us the way he did, controls every aspect of our lives, and yet expects not to engage in these most basic behaviors.

Can't dispute the sentiment but God Is Not Great was a second-rate The God Delusion by someone with twice the ego and half the intellect.
StanleyPain
In other words, you didn't read it.

A used car salesman can't actually win a debate against anybody. I'm glad this guy was filling in for Richard Dawkins, so that guy can get back to doing science already. I love R-Dawk and all, but I mean let's get some flippin' science already.
