While many of his arguments may be inaccurate or fallacious, William Lane Craig did blow Hitchens out of the water in this debate from a purely debate standpoint. Whether or not they are good arguments, Hitchens barely responded to any of Craig's opening arguments and at the Q&A segment, Hitchens kept trying to beat around the bush of Craig's questions.

What was the hmm for? Are you hmming my stuff in brackets, or the statement about St. Justin? If the latter, well I wo---   woh, wait, you used a smiley from civfanatics? That's like +1000 geek points. Seriously. You da man. Civ forever! Sid forever!

 ;D

Anyway, regarding St. Justin...

"The so-called logical evidence for the existence of God is: the cosmological, theological, psychological, historical, ethical proofs, and many more, which, through the passing of time have been formulated into philosophical rationalism. They cannot, in the Dogmatics of the Orthodox Church, have a value of real evidence because they are based on the principles of the relative, limited, sinful minds and senses of humanity. To the Church and the Revelation, the truth about the existence of God is an illogical and irrational hypothesis, which has the need of proof with the basis of logical reasoning, the truth which God has revealed to us, and is therefore the unquestionable, true evidence. As a divine and given reality, this truth is not dependent on proof and arguments from rational functions of the mind." - Fr. Justin Popovich, Orthodox Faith and Life in Christ, p. 202

To be fair, I've never been overly enamored with Hitchens. And if Craig recycles arguments as often as the atheists I've watched claims he does, then Hitchens didn't seem to be aware of it. But really what I tried to do is not simply evaluate the arguments, but rather to look at things from the perspectives of both men. Craig does rely on assumptions and disputable argumentation (which gets to the point Hitchens tried to make about Craig usually being considered an evidentialist, but really going down the presuppositionalist road quite a ways as well). Both men ask us to consider the evidence, but what they don't delve deeply enough into IMO is where the speakers and the listeners are starting from. If I started with reason being the ultimate criterion, and perhaps the only important one, and tried to view everything from an objective, outside-looking-in position, then Craig would not have persuaded me, and neither would Hitchens have done so. But if I put myself in the shoes of both men, the naturalist and the Christian (not at the same time, but I mean trying to understand each man, one at a time), and was willing for the sake of argument to accept certain assumptions that each man accepts, and asked who made the better case, to me it seemed like Craig did so.

Ahh, ok :)  I haven't been around Civfanatics for a while though, except maybe once or twice a year while looking for a download or something. I used to play the GOTM all the time for... Civ 3 I think, and Civ 4 when it first came out I think... but it's been too long, I forget which (probably both).

Yeah, June 19th (I didn't know off the top of my head, even though I've been seeing articles on it at gaming sites, so I checked wiki). I just recently started playing it again. Still not in love with it. That my computer isn't as good as it should/needs to be probably is part of that.

You should check out their OT sometime. Like most forums, it's not nearly as good as it used to be, but you still seem like you could fit in well.

Hurray my mother said that I could get a dog this summer! I do live in an apartment and I do not have much experience training dogs, but I have rad a lot about animal psychology. So, I think that I am going to get a greyhound since they are lazy and sleep 20 hours a day, requiring very little effort from me to take care of! Hurray for laziness!

If you would be willing to take the dog from the house across the street from me I would be happy to dognap procure it for you. The owners leave it on the front porch most of the day and night, and it barks every time anything goes past... cars... people... animals...   if you don't take up my offer, I may have to find another solution...  :o

While going through the file where my Dad keeps our genealogical records, I found a certificate commemorating one of my ancestors' first Communion.

Roughly, it says:

"Anthony Baptiste took his first Communion
in the Church of [??] on the 11th
of the month of April
of the year 1852........[??, presumably a signature]"

It's pretty awesome that we'd still be able to have this after so many years.

Pawn Stars is the best show on TV

fix'd

Thats actually my other favorite.

and no one take my Jersey Shore comment too seriously.  Yes, I watched it... but I watched it like you would watch a horrible train wreck.  Its absolutely horrific, but you cant help but look anyways...
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

— Chrysostom

I can't believe some of the stuff I've said 4 years ago on this board.  Today, I'm glad I say less although I'd like to reach 8,000 posts while continuing to lower my posts per day.  Beyond that, I'm not sure if I have another 1,500 posts left in me for the next milestone.
