a voice of reason

This past weekend I had the unique opportunity to spend three days with a small group of people and Dinesh D’Souza author of numerous books the latest of which is entitled, What’s So Great about Christianity.

While being a NY Times best-selling author and speaker, D’Souza spends much of his time in public debates with leading atheists all of whom are increasingly puzzled by the continued existence and vitality of religion worldwide…what Richard Dawkins refers to as a “virus of the mind.”

It was a fascinating time with Dinesh. He is personable, funny and incredibly brilliant. Here is a clip of him in a debate with Christopher Hitchens addressing the atheist assertion that religion is the cause of violence and conflicts of the world.

    Great clip. I searched for the rest of the debate on youtube and found it by matching Dinesh D’Souza’s shirt in your clip. They are worth a listen. Thanks for bringing Dinesh once again to my attention.

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
