  1. Hi Peter, I have watched your debates for the last two nights. I think you’ve done well considering the environment is somewhat against you.

    Here’s an interesting question to ask the religious:

    If evidence was discovered which proved (beyond shadow of a doubt) that their source texts were fictional would they stop believing?

    If they say no, there’s no way you can change their beliefs (although it doesn’t mean you can’t win debates with them).

    In general I believe those who subscribe to a specific religion have a bad case of confirmation bias ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias ) among other things.

  2. May I ask who this is. I probably remember you 🙂
    But thank you, it was kind of hard to debate seeing as I was cut off a few times but it was still fun.

    I have often pondered that question but I don’t usually ask it because I don’t think it will take us anywhere. But I do really appreciate watching the debate and checking out my page 🙂
