Christopher Hitchens and rabbi Shmuley Boteach debate the existence of god

February 16, 2008

To call it a debate is kind of laughable and does a disservice to both parties -- to Hitchens because he utterly owns it, and to Boteach because the misnomer perpetuates and reinforces his false belief that it was actually a debate.

Sure, Hitchens is an intellectual giant and there are very few people in this world who could actually go toe-to-toe with him, especially on this topic, but seriously, Boteach just comes across as desparate. Indeed, he closes his first rebuttal with this brilliant insight: "All you need to do to prove the existence of god and how intelligent the design of our universe is, is to see how smart Christopher Hitchens is." Ugh.
