Craig vs hitchens debate

Aparantly the hitchens vs craig debate was put on youtube however was taken of before i got to see it. Judging by some of the comments left here craig must have been slaughtered:

i saw these yesturday, excellent series of q&a's Christopher won hands down :)

I've discussed this kind of thing with theists .Some of them asked me if I had heard William Lain Craig , as if he was this marvellous philosopher with proofs of Gods existence , well I'm less than impressed , He's rubbish

avatarI've just finished listening to William Lane Craig's opening arguments, and all I can say is:JESUS CHRIST!...Hitchens could, honestly, just come on now and break wind, and that would constitute a successful rebuttal.

sbooder- Even I could have torn this guy a new asshole- and thats not too impressive.

Clarifying my last post

Firstly, somebody called crusader for truth wrote on my last blog post:
"Mike, sorry dude but I don't think that's what Dawkins was saying at all. You have to marvel at the ways of the world, and the beauty of nature, but that doesn't mean that a god of any kind made these things."

I agree that we dont need a sky daddy to marvel at the world, however dawkins does believe we are robots. In an interview he said the following:
Far from it. A robot to me, then and now, is potentially an exceedingly complicated and indeed intelligent being. I was using the word robot as almost a sort of poetic evocation of the idea that here is this fantastically complicated machine which has been programmed to do something. What interested me is that it has been in advance programmed to work by all manner of complicated, flexible and if necessary intelligent means towards one end, which is the propagation of the DNA which did the programming.

More atheist discrimination

ive noticed a common method of discrimination on the internet. Often websites will ask if you are a robot (with a yes/no) option or a set of random words you need to type. However this assumes that people arent just biological robots which is contary to what richard dawkins teaches.
