Description

Peter Hitchens gives his arguement for the existance of God.Facebook @ http://fb.me/theoxfordunionTwitter @ http://www.twitter.com/OxfordUnionOxford Union Website @ http://www.oxford-union.org/Peter Hitchens opens by stating that he hates this argument. He says that the opposition reminds him of his adolescent self, the worst person he ever knew. This debate is not serious, it's a matter of opinion and thereby a matter of choice. The question, he says, that should be discussed is why we choose what we choose?Quotes Thomas Nagel, in his opinion the most intelligent atheist living today, "why is it that me and my fellow atheists want so much for they're not to be a god?"Based on the knowledge we have, we construct a belief that helps us to discover what we ought to do and how we ought to live and if our actions have significance beyond what we immediately do.He says that the atheists know that if everyone didn't believe in God there would be a lawless society in which we cannot trust people not to lie, cheat, steal or rape. Without the advantages of Christianity we would lose all faith in people doing the right thing.Filmed on Thursday 8th November 2012ABOUT PETER HITCHENS:Author and former atheist now a member of Church of England.ABOUT THE OXFORD UNION SOCIETY: The Union is the world's most prestigious debating society, with an unparalleled reputation for bringing international guests and speakers to Oxford.
