I really love Hitchens when after the adultery question. After he is so logical and reasoned and eloquent it is fantastic to hear the responses "none of your fucking business" and "who gives a shit". Angry Hitch was so fucking awesome.

+DLON ALOKIN I don't know if Hitch got paid for this, but I tried to put myself in his place & pretend I had to listen to this host. I lasted 3 minutes. Sad thing is, this is the same way atheist podcast heros treat dumbfuck religious people who can't articulate their view very well. I'm sure Hitchens handled this pompus, self righteous dumbfuck, but I can't bring myself to listen. I probably couldn't do Hitchen's job.

My favourite slaps from this: ''We're just playing a little game of 'what if''' ''Yes, I'm playing it right along with you....I'm glad you think it's a game by the way! I rather agree with you!'' ''not sure that god is Kim Jong Il..." "Well, Ask Kim Jong Il, he has a different opinion." ''So ownership is a bad thing??'' ''Of people...yes.''

Lol, I've never heard anyone get such an ass whooping ever. I'll bet that twit wished he never invited Christopher Hitchens onto his show and never postulated that infantile 'what if' game. Total intellectual mismatch, one can only feel pity for the dimwitted interviewer.

Wow, the DJ is a real turd! that fake articulation in his voice is hilarious...and to think that his inane, emotional hyperbole and presupposition would even ruffle Hitch's feathers is absolutely laughable..water off a ducks back, and dealt with by casually and indifferently delivered intellectual atom bombs.

Hitchens was in no mood for this guy's nonsense and he properly destroyed his absurd statements.

Wow- did this moron really think this was clever in some way? I mean you can't start a serious argument by asking to simply be granted all these extraordinary premises- I mean you're basically saying- "Well, what if we pretend everything religion asserts is true- then does it make sense to be an atheist?" Well of fucking course it wouldn't- but that's the whole point morons- we don't grant you anything of the sort. What pointless, religious, nonsense- you ppl will never fucking get it.

Godwads need to go the way of the dinosaur, sooner the better. So proud of their ignorance, so jealous of their right to condemn others. That is how you can tell a godwad from a believer. True believers will continue to have faith, misguided though that may be, but they feel no compunction to inflict their views on others or judge people.

I am astounded. I checked out comments expecting to see a plethora of religious rhetoric and indignation and all I see is a vast cascade of wonderful support for one of the most brilliant defenders of freedom of expression and the right to doubt. Maybe reason is starting to make a dent in the world and we may one day educate ourselves to the 'holy land'; a day without servility to the superstitious.

The arrogance of the silly man doing the 'interview' is simply horrid.  Is this the way christians have be taught to act.  And for such a pea-brain to approach Hitch this way is simply asinine.  What if the 'what if' guy is just a paid stooge who fell on his face.  Just a guess but the what if guy should probably lay off the coke in any case.

Who is this annoying prat interviewer, and why did Hitchens persist with it? I couldn't listen to anymore than about 2 mins worth. A classic example of someone trying too hard to be funny, while pushing a serious agenda.

I wouldn't be able to listen to accusations about when I was a kid. People must mature, and sometimes their realization of what they apparently need most in life matures faster than their recognition of or esteem for the rights of others. God would KNOW that had he designed us to mature this way.  Am I at fault for following his plan of maturation? At least I grew up and confessed and repaid more than what was owed. To me, it's the best possible outcome. Suck it, (petulant) Lord, unless this too is a test (and even then).

If God made you, does he not also own you?  This is an interesting question here and one we will have to answer as a species very soon because of the coming of A.I. If an A.I. becomes self aware, is a human going to own it?  Are we going to do slavery all over again with any life that we might create? This would then make us more moral than these ancient gods that people still worship today.

"I am glad you think It's a game by the way, I rather agree with you!" He may have been a drunk and a smoking idiot at times, but this man's eloquence has presence, it's inspiring!

What Christians do not understand about the relationship between god and humans - If gods power is so grand and infinite, and it was so easy for him to create the entire universe. Then there's no reason to thank him. Honestly by the description of god I'd expect those things. I guess it's a matter of being humble. but if you're charitable to another human, and don't expect a thank you, everyone knows that there is something far more admirable, far more respectable, and far more modest about that. Than deliberately asking someone to thank you. And that's why every atheist you ask will tell you. god is a pathetic, petty deity, and he hasn't earned my respect. Of course he'd have to exist.

Todd Friel, the guy who fell flat on his face in the segments, is the main host. incidentally, I went on the website and discovered the word 'pneumatology'. Which, to my surprise, is not the study of large female breasts but instead the 'Christian' study of the Holy Spirit!

The host thought that he could trap Hitch into admitting he was a reprehensible person by using the ancient screed called the 10 commandments by which to 'nail him' (pun intended). A classic use of strawmen to trap the unwary. But Hitch played along, and challenged him all along the way. I think perhaps the most telling point is when Hitch says, contemptuously, " I'm glad you think it's a game". Priceless!

wow, beatdown, straight up, ice cold, fuckin beatdown, I dont know whom this radio host is, but as soon as I heard that whacky ass, fake, pandering radio voice I knew he would be no match for the superior intellect of Hitchens, But the outright condescending tone of which he conducts his poor excuse for a segment truly makes me happy NOT to be on his side of the argument, Hitchens was bombarded by sunday school Christian nonsense questions, and rhertoric under the 5th grade guise of "What if I (the radio host)  do not listen to all the great points you are making, and instead try and convince people that celestial creation for the purpose of slavery, is not only justified and alright, but superimposed as correct because I have a book Ive hardly read, that says it is GREAT amd COMMANDED therefore nothing else matters.!" Hitchens once again, wins every single one of the many childish argments presented to him whole handed and flawlessly, and avoids the OBVIOUS traps for soundbytes put forward by a miserable radio crew, Yes, nice try on that one because thats clearly what they were fishing for, and he didnt give them a damn thing.  I suggest knowing your opponent and knowing when you are overwhelmingly beaten before you even make the phone call next time..
