Christopher Hitchens vs 4 Christians - Does the god of Christianity exist? [2009]

A panel debate with Christopher Hitchens, William Lane Craig, Douglas Wilson, Lee Strobel, Jim Dennison.

Most people wouldn't sit in the middle of 4 people in a pannel and try to argue with all 4. Christopher Hitchens really wasn't most people though. This is one of my favourite debates with him, though sometimes when I watch it, I skip the non sense from the other fools.

Lee Strobel seems genuine and honest - even an intelligent guy.  But I feel like he is completely misled because of the simple fact that his wife became a believing Christian.  Even in the video about his change, he said at the end that there was evidence for both sides of the argument and he 'made the leap of faith' because his wife wanted him too so badly.  

So after watching his entire video, I actually thought he was making good arguments from an apologetic standpoint.  But then I feel like he lost all credibility - with me at least - when he said he made the leap because of his wife - Not because one side had more explanatory power or better arguments.

I tried.

I really did.

I tried to listen to William Lane Craig. But my brain started turning to mush and dripping out of my ears.
