  • Chirstopher Hitchens vs. Cardinal Pell! Should be a very good event

    tags: apologetics

    • Tony Jones, ABC's Nightline journalist and presenter of the broadcaster's weekly panel show, Q and A, will host the address given by American-based journalist and author, Christopher Hitchens in the Concert Hall of the Opera House at 8 pm on Saturday 3 October.  A self-described "anti-theist," Hitchens will explore the religious impulse, claiming that by believing in God, "people deceive themselves and attempt to deceive others."

      Hitchens argument will be countered by Cardinal Pell the following day with his address: "Without God we are Nothing," which will take place in the Opera House Studio at 5.30 pm on Sunday, 4 October.
      But the dangerous ideas presented at the Festival will not only centre around questions about God and faith but will include discussions on polygamy and Islam, a panel debate on Why Democracy is Not for Everyone and a claim by such well known and revered artists as Adelaide Festival Director, Robyn Archer, that "Australian Stereotypes are Betraying out Cultural Identity."
