Hitchens Proclaimed Winner of Debate on Religion

Christopher Hitchens was proclaimed the winner of a debate with Tony Blair on the topic of: Is religion a force for good in the world?. The debate was two hours long.


The statistics regarding how opinions were changed during the debate are quite interesting and speak well to both men's ability at debate and the passionate convictions. Nevertheless Hitchens won 68/32 which is 2/1 by my feeble math skills. I rather tend to agree with Hitchens.

I agree with Hitchens. Is scaring children with Hell and say women are inferior good for the world?
I believe the spiritual quest is good as we all have the sacred inside us but religion becomes slavery to a false ideology. Most of the old guard religions use fear and domination to maintain their flocks. Don't get me started.
