The headline of the day comes from the Boulder Daily Camera (H/T Complete Colorado):
Conservative D’Souza, atheist Hitchens to debate God at CU
Go back and read that again, out loud if you must… Dinesh D’Souza and Christopher Hitchens – two very bright, educated, opinionated men – are going to debate against the Almighty? Of course, this won’t be a fair fight by any remote stretch of human imagination. For example, try responding to this opening statement:
Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
But somehow I don’t think that’s what the Daily Camera‘s editors intended. In case you’re interested, the real event “Atheism vs. Religion” is set for Monday, January 26, 7 p.m. at Macky Auditorium in Boulder.

Sorta remahnds me of this:
At th’ end of th’ day, such debates are just as funny. ‘N just as meaningless.
Th’ defense of th’ Faith, Brother Ben, does not lie here, but in somethin’ far more weighty ‘n profound. It is at once both non-rational ‘n rational. ‘N it is the Spirit who drives it, not th’ academy.
