Christopher Hitchens Debate
I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I have seen practically all of the Hitchens debates on YouTube. However, there was one that I'd seen that I'd like to see again but I can't find it! I can't recall the name of the theologian he debated. What I do know is that the man was either Irish or Scottish. It was a terrific debate.

Can anyone help me?

Here's a list of a bunch of atheist vs theist debates, including over 30 with Hitch. Maybe the name will jump out at you when you see it.

I'm just thinking out loud.

I'm guessing ... John Lennox (Scottish)
George Galloway is also Scottish but he's not a theologian.

Debate is such a strong word. Not one I would choose to go with.

Thanks, KTS~

Been through the whole list. Still can't find him! I'm beginning to think I imagined it. Frustrating.

Thanks, guys!

Nope. It's not any of the above. The guy I saw was younger. He was very entertaining. Not at all a stuffed shirt. Irish or Scottish. This is driving me batshit.

RE: Christopher Hitchens Debate
I would say he was in his mid 40's. (Could be older or younger.) He was funny, made some genuinely logical, thought provoking points. I don't know why I can't find it. Christopher was at his best and, of course, can't be conquered. It was an engaging debate.

Thanks for the help! I'll continue to look and when I find it I'll post the link here.

I'm curious know too.

I was gonna say Doug Wilson, but he's much older than 40, and is not Scottish.
