Alright, so nobody's taken me up on the debate challenge post, so I've left a link on the sidebar to it. I await a challenger. Nachum apparently felt that the post displayed an overconfidence which my age made impossible to justify: "You're what, 22? It's good to know you've got it all figured out." All I'm trying to point out is that it is unfair for people to characterize my views based on naive teenagers or wide-eyed individuals who think the rabbis at Discovery Seminars did their homework on the other side's viewpoints. How about we have a format where each side gets a fair shake? Why isn't that okay?
Moving right along...
I was curious and wanted to ask readers something:
Christopher Hitchens has cancer. He's probably dying. By the way, he's halakhically Jewish. So my questions follow: If you knew the above facts about Hitchens, have you been davening for him? If you didn't, will you now daven for him? If not, why not?
