I am not a great fan of Christopher Hitchens, but I like this radio interview with him which PZ Myers has posted. He kicks arse. I'd like to read a transcript of it.
(the Youtube link is in two clips, but the last five minutes of the second clip is empty)
I like this because I have been there so often, where Hitchens is. The notion that one has not considered these flimsy arguments, and a lack of realisation of how flimsy they are. It's nice to hear him keeping his composure, replying politely to every point raised.
I don't know whether anything will ever come of repeated polite engagement. But this is why, although I am not strictly an atheist, I feel an affinity and respect for atheism. I feel it has a clean and bracing quality.
Hitchens, and god knows he's a drunk and a war monger, nevertheless comes across as more highly - I don't know - more spiritually developed than the other guy. He'd probably hate to be told so, and I know it's a very woo-woo thing for me to say. But that's how it feels to me.
ETA here's an MP3 of the interview
