It's about to get good!
I wish Bill would not do this; it provides Hitchens with a hook for going off on a rant and ignoring the public evidence. And it's not like the guy needs an excuse.
Yes, this argument doesn't work for me except as confirmation on a personal level. As C.S. Lewis said, we are no longer in relationship to facts but also to a personal being. It gives us more insight, but it's difficult to use as an argument and just gets dismissed as being merely subjective and mistaking what is a natural occurence for the supernatural.
I think it's perfectly fine that he uses this argument.He makes a BIG qualification every time that everyone seems to ignore..If I recall he says "if I have no good reason to think my personal experience is delusion than I think it's a valid argument."Naturalists appeal to experience all the time and they don't seem to qualify it this way.
