Debate Turek vs. Hitchens: Does God Exist? (2008)
On September 9, 2008, I debated atheist Christopher Hitchens, author of God is not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, at Virginia Commonwealth University. The topic was, “Does God Exist?” Hitchens was his usual charming and witty self (I really like him and said as much), but he did not answer any of the eight arguments that I presented for the existence of God. Many in the audience acknowledged that he dodged nearly all of my questions. Watch the video and decide for yourself which arguments were strongest. Then read comments in the CrossExamined.org blog from a variety of viewers who wanted to weigh in with their opinions and arguments.
