Wrap Up

Hitchens wraps up his time by noting how recent trends in religion damages societies, such as Wahabbism and even how some in America seek to restrict the rights of others.

Craig believes the movement of modernity - the idea of our rational self sufficiency without god - is what has left us bankrupt. Craig is excited to be apart of the renaissance on Christian philosophy and feels it will lead to greater thought about God as we continue.

  2. Trends in religion are not actual arguments for/against God existing.

  9. Hitchens needs to come to God with an honest heart. If you search God out with all your heart and soul, you will surely find Him.

  10. Logically I agree. Craig kicked butt. But rhetorically? I dunno. It reads like Hitchens did a good job of derailing the debate off into pointless ad hominem land... which - even if Craig can deal with it - in front of an audience is probably as good as a win.

    Gotta wait to find out I guess.
