Sam Harris, Michael Shermer, Deepak Chopra, and Jean Houston square off for a Nightline debate on the future of belief.
The entire program lasts about 1 hour 50 minutes. Watch all parts continuously by clicking here.
I don’t know, but if God becomes unemployed, I don’t think we should put Him on the dole. Can you imagine the percentage of the budget He would devour?
He should get a job! There’s got to be a planet out there with some tribes trying to kill each other off that need a God to justify their slaughtering behavior and tell them they are at the center of the universe and the heavens revolve around them.
He’s perfectly capable, so He can work like the rest of us!
This was an awesome debate, even with Deepak Chopra spouting all manner of gibberish. Actually, it was even more entertaining watching him say that stuff and just befuddling Shermer. You know he just wanted to just yell, “what the fuck are you going on about?” at the end of every Chopra speech.
I highly recommend the one with Ron Jeremy vs. the anti-porn Jebus crusade, it’s possibly even more entertaining. Now Michael Shermer and Ron Jeremy? An un-fucking-stoppable team!
Can you tell me what do you mean about the word “God”?
If you mean “Allah” then i must say that you surely do not know “Allah”. It seems you are thinking in place of a micro organism about human!
Um, human, WTF? Engrish as a second language? “thinking in place of a micro organism about human!” Good point genius, come on back when you can actually articulate a point.
@Rob: Insulting someone because they may be ESL is not cool. Insulting their ideas is another matter entirely.
Of course Real God, or The Divine Conscious Light, has a future.
That having been said all of the old power-seeking cults, especially the three Middle Eastern monotheistic monstrosities and their quest for totalitarian global rulership, are well past their use by date.
