Hitchens-Sharpton Debates Religion

In the video below the fold Christopher Hitchens, who not surprisingly is a bit of a hero of mine, debates the idea that morality must be founded in religion. I don’t know that this argument is relevant to many high school debates outside of Nietzsche, but in college a few teams work this into their shtick.  There is some argument about human nature in here though that may be more useful. But more generally, I think emulating Hitchens’ style would be a good form of judge adaptation for lay judges. He has a very good blend of high brow academic remarks and low brow humor that blends together into an entertaining format.
