Hitchens brothers debate if civilization can survive without God
Brothers Christopher and Peter Hitchens squared off Tuesday in a debate over whether civilization can survive without God. Christopher, the older of the two, is a renowned atheist thinker and author. Peter, the lesser known of the two, is a practicing Christian and also a well-regarded author.
Christopher Hitchens is going through a very public battle with cancer, a subject that came up often during the debate. Michael Cromartie from the Ethics and Public Policy Center, moderated the debate and mentioned Christopher, who lives in the District of Columbia, was attending in between doctor appointments. Peter Hitchens had flown in from England specifically for the lunchtime debate....

You have it backwards. Anti-religion is always the first refuge of anti-religious bigots, as well as of lunatic dictators who spend a lot of time murdering the religious. All philosophies that deny Christ are failures, and will continue to fail. Study history, then think things through for yourself. Let me guess...you are absolutely convinced there is no absolute truth, either. Close?

"The problem with trying to decipher or decode God is that you cannot. God, if He exists, is so far beyond our comprehension that we could not begin to explain Him or break down His attributes into terms that make any sense to human logic. He created our logic. We are a creation. Things we create do not "figure us out". What they know is what we instill into them(computers, books, etc.). The creation is not meant to understand the Creator always. Obviously we are not inanimate objects, and we have a spiritual element that is not present in any other being, but the concept stands true. We will never be able to explain the Creator except through the Word He has given us and the experiences we have personally had with Him."
"a debate over whether civilization can survive without God."
No! God will not allow it.
"Jn3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."
