"For though argument does not create conviction, the lack of it destroys belief. What seems to be proved may not be embraced; but what no one shows the ability to defend is quickly abandoned. Rational argument does not create belief, but it maintains a climate in which belief may flourish."

- Austin Farrer


Does Atheism Poison Everything?


Christopher Hitchens vs. David Berlinski: A Debate

In front of a sold-out crowd of 1,200 in Birmingham, Alabama, Christopher Hitchens, famed atheist and author of "God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything," debates Dr. David Berlinski, Paris mathematician and author of "The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions."

Hitchens and others of the New Atheism movement have called for the annihilation of religion in order to establish a purely secular society. Berlinski, who describes himself as a secular Jew and an agnostic takes the position that a society absent religious influence is not the kind of place where most of us would want to live.

So the question stands: Is a purely secular society preferable to a religious one? Ultimately, this is a question of importance to everyone. Whether a given society is with or without a religious influence affects people of all persuasions, not just Christians and atheists. Seen the debate? Click here for questions this debate raises.
