Richard Dawkins and the O'Reilly Factor

Richard Dawkins and the O'Reilly Factor

I must thank the people over at Russell's Teapot for the heads up on this YouTube video. Frankly, I'm astounded at O'Reilly's strategy. This is, in my opinion, is how NOT to debate this whole atheist/theist issue. O'Reilly fails miserably I think. Why? For these reasons: Personal testimony proves nothing;
  1. The argument that Christianity is a moral fiber doesn't prove it is true. Military rule can provide law and order too;
  2. Deflecting the argument with silly humor helps nothing;
  3. Poking fun at other gods or religions doesn't prove they don't exist or are wrong;
  4. To assert that atheists have committed atrocities too is only an attempt to share blame. It proves nothing except that all humanity is susceptible to evil practices;
  5. Opting for Christianity just in case it is the right religion is simply spiritual gambling;
I could go on, but why don't you just watch the video. I might add that I was impressed with Dawkins' demeanor. Take a look:
