Stephen Fry and Christopher Hitchens
Posted by robertpriddy on July 1, 2010
I have made a shortened transcript of some points (so Google will notice better) made in a YouTube video by these two very lively critics of religion.
In a debate on blasphemy Stephen Fry says:-
“If there is a god it seems to me so obvious and so absolutely clear that – if he does exist – he is capricious, mean and wilful.
To say that he’s loving, that he’s benevolent, that he cares for us, that we should spend our time on our knees in front of him – it’s outrageous.”
Christopher Hitchens says:-
“We are created sick and commanded to be well. That couldn’t happen. That means there is no evidence for the existence of god. … If (by) wishing this were true, it’d be wanting to be a slave and a plaything.”
This YouTube video is worth watching
