Q&A part II of the Hitchens vs. Turek debate at VCU, VA.
Full debate:

Hitchens recites 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.
