Star Hitch vs. WLC Debate
I've read Hitch but had never watched any of his speeches or debates. I'm watching his debate with WL Craig at Biola College in CA. I knew he was awesome from reading books, but I'm glad for YouTube so I can see the mad debate skills preserved for posterity.

I love Hitch debates too, but think the Craig debate is one of his weaker ones, in all honesty. My favorite is the Dembski debate, or the debate he did with Harris about "Is there an afterlife" with two spiritual jews. Also the intelligence squared debate with Stephen Fry on the Goodness of the Catholic church is priceless - one of the best knockout debates I've seen. If you like Hitch outside of religious discussions, as I do, his free speech debate with Tharoor is awesome.

This speech is my favorite one, and combines free speech and religion.

But yeah, Hitch kicks ass.

I like watching Hitchens speak or debate, even more than I like reading his books. He was so smart and funny...and quick.

You can take your time writing and rewriting a book or a speech but when you can debate off the cuff like he could....WOW! Oh, and I loved his accent.

I began watching that one just a few minutes ago, but then husband woke up and took over the computer.

I'll have to try to watch it tomorrow.
