Kind of Popeye vs. Dennis the Menace here. O'Reilly is an entertainment boob. However, Dawkins is a little pompous and prim to me. "Please stop shouting at me!". Weak sauce. Now Dawkins vs. William Lane Craig? True entertainment!

The isuue was never in doubt. O'Reilly's brain on the edge of a razor blade would look like a BB in the middle of a six-lane road.

Nice. O Reilly is okay but not the best host. Not sure where I stand with all the bible stuff but I lean towards this Dawkins fellow.

Thanks for the link. I saw part of this the other night--I'm embarrased that this is proof that I watched FOX -- and tried to summarized it to my wife. She got a kick out of it. I'm glad I can now prove that O'Reilly actually called Dawkins a Fascist.

Having manners and asking the same from your host is pompous?
I suppose being an intelligent, educated man makes him an elitist, too.

Only in America.

I agree to a certian extent.

Dawkins has debated with O'Reilly before, he should have known what to expect.

Then again, it has to be difficult to hold any sort of conversation with O'Reilly.

Has anyone watched the series of 5 videos in the 'Nightline- Does god exist' debate?

Cameron and 'Banana Man' make idiots of themselves of course but to be honest, the two atheist put up some very feeble arguments against their god claims. There are a few of us here that could have done much better.....and what an irritating voice on that woman!!!

Its only difficult if you disagree. It must be terribly frustrating for someone who assumes you can reason with any adult. Dawkins now knows it has less to do with age. It has everything to do with maturity.
