How can ANYONE take Dinesh D'Souza seriously? (Part 1)

This is a debate between Christopher Hitchens (God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything) and Dinesh D'Souza (What's So Great About Christianity) from October of last year. Dinesh D'Souza is one of those people who thinks that by talking about theology they're doing legitimate philosophy. Christopher makes it a point of saying D'Souza is one of the "most formidable opponents" he's ever debated "on any subject." I do hope he was only trying to emphasize just how awful his other opponents have been, because D'Souza is nothing more than a polished rhetorician who buys his own arguments.

This is a very entertaining debate, but it's the intellectual equivalent of a squash match in wrestling. Virtually everything D'Souza says is wrong, on several levels.

I'm writing up my own responses to everything D'Souza said, because there is so much more wrong than what Hitchens addressed. I'll post it when I finish writing it.

On The Line

I fucking love this song, even if it is cliché city. You gotta love the master at work.

Michael needs to get off his ass and finish the new album. He's worse at putting things off than I am. Then again, he's better at putting things out than I am.

On that note, I should get off my ass and record all the new stuff I've been writing.

Vince McMahon gets Rickrolled

Lmfao! This is the funniest shit in the world.

Vince McMahon gives away a million dollars every week on RAW (not at once--varying portions of it go to different people throughout the night), but the first winner he called lastnight totally Rickroll'd him Vince's reaction is priceless.

This incident already has its own section in the Wikipedia entry
