Hitchens citates Omar Khayyám, translated by Richard Le Gallienne:

"And do you think that unto such as you;
A maggot-minded, starved, fanatic crew:
God gave the secret, and denied it me?--
Well, well, what matters it! Believe that, too."

Turek answers: god is probable (which is more a deist point and actually contradicts his religion) and hints on something like an argumentum verbosium. Hitchens answers: you need to do better than that if you want to tell us what to do, how we have to behave - the essence of religion.

"There's 3 witnesses: Creation, Conscience, and Christ...Re: the latter: His sacrifice of atonement is retroactive to everybody who lived before him..."Yet another ridiculous statement from the Fundamentalists! Thanks for posting this, Morgan. Hitchens is truly a Saint for his willingness to bother with these stupid panelists...
