The Great (?) Debate

Hitchens v. Haldane

While it is probably ad hominen, my intent in saying it is not.  It would seem that Hitchens's typification of the Christian view of God as "Dear Leader in the sky" point more to profound "daddy issues" on Mr. Hitchens's part than any deep understanding of who God is.  What is remarkable to me is the sustained resistance to any sort of rational engagement with the deeper insight of religion.  Mr. Htichens, for all his erudition, shows himself incapable of actually addressing the matter in any way that reflects an understanding of the viewpoint of his more reasonable opponents.

Although I do have to say that I have a tremendous number of co-religionists who do not make arguing for the validity of the Christian World viewpoint at all easy.
