I watched the first half of this debate and was shocked at the mental gymnastics Hitchens undergoes to dodge any and all questions asked of him... Its just infuriatingly frustrating, (then again I could just be an angry person :P).

This is a good review of the debate between Hitchens and Craig. Hitchens waffles on during Craig's examination time to limit the amount of questions to be asked of him, (another dodging tactic). Furthermore Hitchens only gave emotional arguments which essentially amount to appeals to emotion, which are a logical fallacy.

wow how embarrassing for hitchens to present so many fallacious and emotional arguments. these debates just undermine any credibility he may have had previously.

Exactly what I thought, yet the atheist fans really don't care if faulty logic is used
