Author Christopher Hitchens debates the Reverend Al Sharpton on the question of whether morality can exist in the absence of God.

-----

A Debate: God Is Not Great with Al Sharpton and Christopher Hitchens.

Taking on possibly the greatest issue of our time - the malignant force of religion in the world - Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion through a close and learned reading of the major religious texts, citing numerous historical instances in which sexual repression and outrageous acts of violence have been committed in the name of God. He argues for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which hell is replaced by the Hubble telescope's awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix. -- NYPL
