I highly recommend watching this.

This is awesome JC!

Turek easily wins this one hands down.

Hitchens sits in God's lap to slap his face. Wow. How relevant is that?!


And Hitchens asking why the crucifixion happened in the most primitive part of the world? It happened in the cradle of humanity. Where else would it have taken place?


And to Hitchens -- the evidence Turek brought forth is open to everybody. So is salvation. All he or any other person needs to do is ask.

Crazy! Thanks for posting this. I'll try to watch the whole thing when I can. Thanks, JC.

I'm about 40 minutes into it. Dr. Turet was excellent. Listening to Christopher Hitchens is like buying a pound of Swiss cheese and finding out that the holes are so big you don't have enough for even an eighth of a single sandwich--that you just bought a pound of air. Hot air.

Really, Mr. Hitchens? The best you can come up with is that human beings, even those of faith, are fallible and so must apologize for past wrongdoings--and this disproves the existence of God?

Same rhetoric. As research advances, as scientists turn from atheist and agnosticism toward at least an acknowledgement of an Intelligent Designer, rhetoric is almost all atheists have left.

And I spy some open, receptive faces in the crowd. I pray that at least one set of ears was opened that evening, even among the crowd of mockers.

JC, thanks for sharing this. And yes, I really think Dawkins could come after you one day. ;) Stand strong, sister!

You guys are awesome -- I haven't even gotten the time to watch it yet, lol. You did notice at the beginning that I wasn't implying you must watch it, right? I'm trying to build up tons of apologetics stuff on my blog -- but thanks again.

You're inspiring me to set aside some other stuff and start watching it. Thanks again.

Hitchens may not believe now...but he will. No doubt about it.

JC, I started watching and I COULD NOT STOP. The end had me almost jumping up and down, in tears. Really, really worth the time investment. I am now buying Dr. Turek's book, I'm praying for Mr. Hitchens, and I'm watching this again. :)

God bless you today.

Hitchens has no arguments other than "People who call themselves Christians do bad things."

Why is he even debating? He has no rebuttal arguments.

I found the whole thing weird.

Turek won by a long way.

It was Chesterton that pointed out that the message of Christianity is that human beings are fallen fallible creatures. Therefore the message of the Church is vindicated by the fact it's children sin.
