War and God - Peter vs Christopher Hitchens

Glorious day here in Melbourne on this Boxing Day.

One of my favourite places is Yarra Bend Park in north east of this most liveable city in the world.

I took a walk this morning, listening to this great debate between two brothers.

It's more than two hours of fascinating exchanges of philosophical thoughts between brothers whose ideologies are completely opposite.

"At least you can f***ing die and leave in North Korea.  
Does the Koran or Bible offer you that liberty?  
NO. The tyranny, the misery, the utter ownership of your entire personality, the smashing of your individuality only begins at the point of death.
This is evil. This is a wicked preachment. 
It attacks our deepest and most essential integrity. It's an insult. 
It says you and I couldn't individually or collectively decide on the right action or right thing without celestial divine permission."
