Hitch & Harris V Rabbis Wolpe & Shavit

On the subject of the (Jewish) afterlife.

The conversation is relatively intellectual - better than the Christian fundie versions of the same argument. Nevertheless the good Rabbis make my brain want to crawl out my ears & run away.

Well put. There's a world of difference in the Xian vs. Jewish approach to these kinds of debates. You'd never hear a Xian conceding a point or making a self-deprecating comment as these two did from time to time. Hitch and Harris were winning so decisively they even had time to disagree with each other, which was gas!

Thoroughly enjoyed this debate, can't recommend it highly enough.

Excellent debate. I even enjoyed the contribution of the Rabbis. Quite witty at times but the arguements they put forward are not placing a longing in me to have myself circumcised just yet..........
