[HQ] Christopher Hitchens vs Tony Blair - Religion is a forc
I know most would have seen this but from what I can gather all version on YT are poor quality with very poor - out of sync - audio.

Here is a beautiful version in high quality with excellent audio!





About:
In a world of globalization and rapid social change does religion provide the common values and ethical foundations that diverse societies need to thrive in the 21st century? Or, do deeply held religious beliefs promote intolerance, exacerbate ethnic divisions, and impede social progress in developing and developed nations alike?

The Motion: Be it resolved, religion is a force for good in the world.

This is getting awful close to spamming the forums...

Maybe a single topic for the videos would be in order.

I noticed that, too.

Most that weren't video posts (same youtube user, btw) are "thanks, glad you enjoyed".

Spam.

RE: [HQ] Christopher Hitchens vs Tony Blair - Religion is a forc
Hi. Sorry that you seem offended by my posts and I can assure it isn't my YT channel as I don't have one. I just found it and am trawling through the masses of videos there.

I'm unfamiliar with chat forums too so it's all a learning curve - along with a recent convert to atheism there's much I need to learn!

I guess me posting links to videos that others may not have seen isn't the done thing in this group but from the messages I've received there's lots of people that appreciated them?

Being new to atheism I'm not a great debater or orator on the subject - as I am sure many here are in a similar position I just thought videos would be a better way for me.

If this is not ok then I must respect that but I can't really see the issue with posting a video every couple of days in a group with so many posts can cause such issues? Why is this?

You came and you posted youtube videos. You came back later to post replies that were very similar to one another. You are aware now and yet you still claim to not 'get it'.

Simply put, you should contribute to the forum before posting youtubes. Contributing means posting comments relevant to other members posts, posting threads of your own ideas/thoughts/feelings... Maybe start with the Intro's thread? It's a good start for a lot of new members.

Welcome! Thumbsup

I think the less we hear from Tony Blair the better.
