The Great Debate, Redux
by Charles Cherry
Christianity Online is hosting a debate between atheist Christopher Hutchins (author of the book God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything) and theologian Douglas Wilson (author of Letter from a Christian Citizen – A Response to “Letter to a Christian Nation” by Sam Harris. As is typical of most of these debates (at least the ones I have listened to or read), the atheist either ignores the arguments of the theologian, or gives a very lame attempt at an answer.
Of course, I am speaking of debates between atheists and real theologians/scholars, not popular pastors or television evangelists (such as the recent “debate” featuring Rick Warren).
Here is the link to part one of the debate on the ChristianityToday website.
