Im sure most people aware of Christoper Hitchens and his outspoken commentary on religion, however i was not so familiar with Dr Lennox. For more information visit http://www.ttf.org/index/about/lennox/
The debate was titled "The New Europe Should Prefer The New Atheism", which i found not particularly inspiring. The debate was organised by "The Trinity Forum" and "The Fixed Point Forum" so i assume that they chose the debate title.
The debate was filmed and will be broadcast, possibly on the BBC later this year, and so will inevitably find its way onto the web.
In brief, here are some of the arguements proposed by Lennox:
- Intelligent Design should be considered as a viable scientific theory
- Atheism leads to communism
- The resurection was not a miracle, therefore Hume was wrong.
- The evidence for Jesus Christ being god in human form is overwhelming (Lennox did forget to provide said evidence)
