Debate: Religion Vs. Evolution

The great and mighty Black Rooster sent me the following video of a debate between Christopher Hitchens and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach on the subject of religion versus evolution.

The debate video is very long, but it is interesting and fun to listen to. Rabbi Boteach does one of the best jobs I’ve heard of defending religion, however Christopher Hitchens still wins out. If you are a logical, reasonable person who watches this video with an open mind, you may gain additional understanding on the explosive topic of religion versus evolution.‚  Christopher Hitchens is a bit overbearing though.

  1. This is a great video. Anyone who watches this with an open mind will realize that God doesnt exist and the thought of it is not just ridiculous but absurd and idiotic. Also the Rabbi constantly ignores the topic at hand and picks at irrelevant parts/quotes of hitchins speech.

  2. Wow. I must say that both men had GREAT points, but I was a little disappointed in both of them. Christopher Hitchens, personally, did the best job in my mind (of course, I’m an atheist so I may be biased : ). But I felt a little bad for Rabbi Boteach because he obviously had a hard time with the crowd. I studied Judaism before I realized that there is no god/s, so I can see his point of view too. He is EXACTLY right about the Jewish perspective and I understand why he was getting so ticked because it seemed nobody was getting it. But he kept going off topic trying to prove points against Hitchens instead of what they were supposed to be debating. He got PWND by C.H. concerning religion as a whole. Religion, no matter what form (Greeks, Romans, Persians, Jews, Christians, Islam, etc) is illogical and there is no need for it in today’s society.
