It was pretty disappointing I thought.
Yes, I agree.
A shame that some of the questions posed weren't "meatier", more interesting .....
And a shame that the studio audience seemed (mostly, I thought) so partisan (pro-Catholic/Christian). That influenced the conduct of the debate in a way that I found rather gut-wrenching & stressful at times. (Like wild applause for some of Pell's not-quite-so-brilliant comments!)
I don't think Dawkins quite knew how to take
some of the audience responses, in his jet-lagged state! Poor thing.
I thought the qandavote.tv was ludicrous. So now we've voted god out of the universe? Spare me.
No, no, no!
The vote was in response to the question:
"Does religious belief make the world a better place?"
The overwhelming TV audience response being that it doesn't.
I wander how Rome will look on Pell's assertion that atheists go to heaven
I wonder how gays will take to being described as slight imperfections in an otherwise perfect Persian carpet?
I wonder of gays get to go to heaven, too?
